E-learning Institute Fellowship


​​​​The CDC E-learning Institute Fellowship (ELI) is a six-month fellowship program designed to cultivate the skills of public health training professionals with limited experience designing or developing e-learning products.
Through a partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Public Health Foundation (PHF), ELI offers access to CDC-developed materials and subject matter experts as well as the opportunity to learn from peers in a positive, experiential environment. Accepted fellows learn innovative strategies and get the hands-on experience needed to create quality e-learning products.
Due to postponement of the 2020 ELI fellowship, applications will not be accepted for 2021. Please check back next year for more information.
