Seven Hertz Fellows will Work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as Summer Interns
The Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering America’s most brilliant minds in science, mathematics and engineering, today announced six new Global Health and Development Fellows. The Global Health and Development Fellowship, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, brings Hertz Fellows to the Gates Foundation for two summer internships over the course of their PhD. Fellows learn to apply their expertise in diverse areas of the applied sciences to the foundation’s mission of improving health and development outcomes around the world.
“The Hertz Foundation is delighted that, after an exciting start last year, the Gates Foundation has expanded the internship program for our fellows in Global Health and Development,” said Robbee Baker Kosak, president, Fannie and John Hertz Foundation. “The partnership between our two foundations started due to a shared belief in the importance of bringing scientific and technological solutions to the wide range of health and development challenges faced by people around the world. We are inspired by these young scientists and engineers and their work to change millions of lives for the better."
The 2018 Global Health and Development Fellows are:
The seven Fellows have a variety of focus areas and are working on different program teams at the foundation. The goals of this program are two-fold: To provide these top students in science, engineering and math with hands-on opportunities to learn about global health issues more deeply via work with the foundations and to be inspired to contribute to these global challenges in ways that can have lasting impact. The Hertz Fellowship in Global Health and Development provides another avenue for the Hertz Foundation to continue its singular mission to identify and support the next generation of scientific leaders and innovators in the United States.
