If you are employed, you must have employer approval to participate and allow for 20% release time to work on this leadership program for which your employer will be reimbursed.   We require the employer verification form to be submitted along with your application. 

Please note that this is NOT a supplement to your salary; you are getting 20% release time from your job to participate in BNLP one day a week and we will reimburse your employer for that 20% time. Payment will be made directly to your employer, plus fringe benefits up to $20,000 for approximately 44 weeks. If you are not employed, it is required for you to provide a fiscal sponsorship form from a fiscal agent, which will include billing JHU monthly in order to compensate you for the 20% time that was dedicated to the program.


If you have any questions about this application or require access to computers or resources in order to submit your video, please contact Rebkha Atnafou via email or call the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute at 410-502-6155.
