Young Health Programme Impact Fellowship by AstraZeneca

Application is currently welcome for AstraZeneca through its Young Health Programme Impact Fellowship 2023 for young leaders to attend Young One Fellowship.

This year, AstraZeneca is going beyond scholarships to deliver a unique YHP Impact Fellowship that provides development opportunities, access to networks, and funding to help the most impactful young health leaders create even more positive change.

By collaborating with One Young World, these inspiring young leaders will attend the One Young World Summit 2023 in Belfast, UK, and receive a $10,000 grant to contribute to a specific project within their eligible non-profit organization. This grant will assist in the development and delivery of effective health promotion programmes, with an emphasis on under-resourced and marginalized communities in low- and middle-income countries. They believe that access to networks, development, and funding will lead to a global health movement led by and for young people. 

For this reason, they are developing a special YHP Impact Fellowship that will allow chosen young non-profit leaders to receive:

  • Access to Networks: Participation in the 2023 One Young World Summit and Ambassador Network, and access to an Alumni group of other young changemakers who are all passionate about NCD prevention 
  • Access to Development: Structured learning and development offerings to enable fellows to scale their impact, including both self-directed and live learning. This includes access to the One Young World Academy, an award-winning MBA program with a University accreditation, and professional training.
