Degree Concentrations

Eligible candidates attend Schools of Public Health accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health. Since 2005, we have matched students from over 50 Schools of Public Health with GSEP projects.

GSEP applicants must be enrolled in a Masters or Doctoral degree program during their GSEP project. Recent graduates are not eligible.

While eligibility is not limited to candidates with a degree concentration in maternal and child health (MCH), applicants must be able to clearly articulate their interest in the MCH field and should note any experience with MCH topics obtained via their coursework, employment, or extracurricular activities in their application.
