The Hertz Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have partnered to establish the Hertz Fellowship in Global Health and Development.
This opportunity expands the Hertz Fellowship experience to include two summer internships at the Gates Foundation. The goal is to provide fellows with hands-on opportunities to learn about global health and development issues and inspire them to broaden their contribution to society.
The internships take place in the Gates Foundation’s Global Health or Global Development programs beginning the summer following selection. Fellows can participate in the program for two summers with each internship lasting 11 to 12 weeks. The Gates Foundation compensates fellows for their salary and provides support for corporate housing and travel costs during the internship period. Fellows must be at least 18 years old to participate.
The Hertz Fellowship in Global Health and Development is open to in-school Hertz Fellows. Fellows must have at least one remaining semester of graduate school after the last summer of their internship.
Individuals who are interested in participating in this program the summer immediately after receiving the Hertz Fellowship may indicate their interest in the Hertz application and discuss further during the finalist stage of the selection process.
In-school Hertz Fellows can submit applications to the Hertz Foundation between December and March. The Hertz Foundation prescreens all interested candidates and recommends fellows to be interviewed by the Gates Foundation. Within four weeks of the interviews, the Gates Foundation will make final decisions regarding internship offers and notify candidates directly.
