Any undergraduate student who is interested in international community health should know about the Mabelle Arole Fellowship, awarded annually since 2002 through John Snow, Inc (JSI) Research and Training. Candidates must be admitted to medical school to be eligible. If awarded the Fellowship s/he defers the entrance to medical school for one year. Applications are due in mid-January 2016 and finalists are interviewed in early March in Washington, DC (at the candidate’s expense). The Fellow would depart the US in mid-June 2016 and returns in late spring of 2017. The fellow, who receives $8,000 to cover all expenses, spends 10 months at the Comprehensive Rural Health Project at Jamkhed (in Maharashtra), one of the best examples of how mobilized/empowered ┬ácommunities can significantly improve their health/nutrition status. All relevant information is available on the AMSA website (www.amsa.org search for Arole) which has a link to Jamkhed site and contains reports by previous Fellows. Any questions can be directed to Dr. David Pyle at dpyle@JSI.com or 503-894-8546 (in Portland, OR).
