The following are tips for a successful application:
  • Carefully read the fellowship technical tracks provided on the What is a Fellow page to help inform your track selection.
  • Tailor and update your resume/CV to the specific technical track(s) you are applying for, and be sure to showcase your skillset. When available, take advantage of our complimentary informational interviews in which we offer resume reviews.
  • Do not include personal information such as photos, salary history/requirements, references, marital status, social security number, age, etc. in your resume/CV.
  • Be mindful of the fellowship tracks you are selecting during your application. Though you may select up to three fellowship tracks, the most successful placements occur when candidates apply for fellowships where they are qualified and have skills that are applicable to the selected fellowship track. That being said, this is where you can highlight your skillsets and desire to grow within that particular field!
  • Prepare your materials before submitting – Proofread your essays and resumes/CVs, ensure materials are saved in the right formats (PDF only), and clearly label your documents per the instructions listed in the application portal.
  • Avoid use of complex formatting such as tables and loud colors/fonts in your essay or resume/CV.
  • Think of three references (mix professional and academic) that can speak strongly to your relevant skills and qualifications, characteristics, and strengths. We will only request references if you are selected as a finalist.


The PHI/CDC Global Health Fellowship Program is implemented for CDC by the Public Health Institute and its partner Consortium of Universities for Global Health.
