The King Abdullah Fellowship Program (KAFP) is a joint effort of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. The Program was established to further strengthen the healthcare system of the Kingdom by boosting the public health capacity there.


After an extensive application and interview process, qualified candidates are awarded two-year scholarships to earn their Master of Public Health (MPH) degrees at the Rollins School of Public Health. During this time, they engage in research projects on subjects in alignment with health care priorities in KSA.
