Global Road Safety Leadership Course: Alumni Fellowship Program
The GRSLC Alumni Fellowship Program is aimed at increasing the capacity of road safety professionals in low- and middle- income countries to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice through a mentored road safety project. Launched in 2021, the Fellowship was delivered remotely and has been designed to encompass three related elements that will provide an immersive experience that will build road safety profile and expertise. Fellows are partnered with a primary mentor from the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) or the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU) who provide on-going support throughout the duration of the initiative and also provide connections to a broader network of road safety leaders.
The three(3) elements of the fellowship include:
- Participation in a road safety and leadership capacity building program including participation in a course at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Summer Institute and special access to the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration webinars.
- Development and implementation of a road safety project with access to world-leading mentors for technical guidance and support. The project will be either a newly developed concept that can be feasibly implemented during the course of the Fellowship program, or a specified element of an existing project in which the Fellow is engaged. Fellows are guided by dedicated expert mentors to support the implementation of the project.
- Join the GRSLC faculty to assist delivery of our virtual Initiative Partners Course.
The inaugural GRSLC Alumni Fellowship Program runs from April 2021 – April 2022.
