- Visit to start the online application process.
- Select your top choice program(s) and start date(s) for application.
- Complete three short-answer questions.
- Complete a brief Spanish self-evaluation (for Latin America programs only).
- Input contact information for two academic or professional references. (Be sure to ask for their permissions in advance.) Advise your references to add to their address book to ensure our reference request arrives in their inbox. References will be asked to complete a brief survey on your behalf (a formal letter of recommendation is not required).
- Submit your CFHI application online and a $95 application fee (non-refundable).
CFHI accepts applications on a rolling basis and recommends applying 3 to 6 months in advance of your program start date. Additional time should be allotted for travel to a country that requires a visa for entry or extensive immunizations/vaccinations. CFHI can usually accommodate last minute applicants year-round (45 days or less before the program arrival date). Please don’t hesitate to reach out even if the program start date is approaching.

CFHI will review your application and notify you of your status, most likely within one to two weeks. This time frame depends largely on when your application is fully complete. If your application indicates that you are likely to succeed in a Global Health Education Program, you will receive a confirmation email notifying you of your acceptance.
