See their website for more information about the application and about acceptable institutions to attend.

Global Health Fellows Program in Geneva
Duke Program on Global Policy and Governance
Deadline: November 27, 2006
Designed to equip students to join in the fight against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and other pressing health challenges, the Global Health Fellows Program provides students with both an academic and experiential perspective on how inter-governmental institutions, public-private partnerships, and non-governmental organizations shape global health policy. The program combines internships, program-sponsored events throughout the summer in Geneva, and a course on global health issues. The program requires a minimum commitment of eight weeks, including attendance in the “Health Policy in a Globalizing World” course. Participants are responsible for securing their own public policy internships in Geneva, though the Program assists the students in securing them. The Program does not provide partial or full scholarships. Each student is responsible for program fee, room and board, airfare and other living expenses. More>
