Applicants must be young leaders working on the frontlines of delivering care and are dedicated to health and care-giving to under-served populations and communities. They can be nurses, midwives, community health workers, doctors, social entrepreneurs, digital health experts, or people working for a social enterprise, medical facility and/or NGO. If selected, health care professionals classified as government officials within their home country will need approval from their employer, and may have to undergo an additional health care compliance approval process by Johnson & Johnson before their scholarship can be confirmed.
Applicants must be available to commit 10% of their time to the program, over the 6-month program period from September 2019 to February 2020. They need to show that they have leadership qualities, and are committed to delivering positive change. They must have an understanding of key local and/or global issues, a track record of generating impactful and innovative ideas, and interest and engagement in sharing and learning from others. They need to be enthusiastic, pro-active, creative, eager to improve, not afraid to change the status quo and are team players, good communicators and good project managers.
Priority will be given to applicants who are making a positive impact within their local community through the delivery of care to vulnerable people, their families and communities.
