CDC E-Learning Institute (ELI) Fellowship: Applications Now Open

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in partnership with the Public Health Foundation (PHF), invite distance learning educators who need to know how to develop online training products, to apply to the CDC E-Learning Institute (ELI) fellowship.

The no cost, six-month online fellowship empowers education and training professionals from state and local health departments and public health organizations with limited experience designing or developing e-learning products. As part of the fellowship program, participants will create an online training product, receive mentoring support from CDC and outside e-learning experts, collaborate with peers, and take part in online learning opportunities. Participants will also travel to the CDC offices in Atlanta, GA to attend an orientation and two-day final showcase event to present their e-learning products.

Who should apply? This fellowship is open to public health professionals responsible for developing training products at state, local, territorial, tribal, and provincial health departments within the United States and Canada. University and hospital teaching professionals who are involved in public health are also encouraged to apply. Federal employees and contractors and international applicants are not eligible for the ELI fellowship.

Skill level: Beginner to Intermediate

Time commitment: Fellowship activities require approximately 2-3 hours per week for didactic learning and discussion; however, recent graduates reported spending up to 10 hours of personal time per week once starting design and development of the product. Attendance at two in-person meetings, one in February (one day) and one in June (one to five days) is required. Workload, upcoming travel, and previous commitments should be heavily considered before applying. Supervisory approval is required to participate.

Apply for this exceptional learning opportunity! Applications will be accepted through October 6 and selected applicants will be notified by November 15. If you have questions about the ELI fellowship, please contact
