Child Family Health International (CFHI) partners with Ohio State University to provide undergraduate students with ethical, sustainable global health field experiences. Ohio State University students must complete the Office of International Affairs (OIA) application.  Admitted students are required to take a one credit hour online course during the second session of spring semester in order to prepare for their service experience.  Additional details will be provided in the OIA letter of acceptance.

OSU undergraduate students are required to start their process through OSU’s Education Abroad office. The Education Abroad office will inform you when it is time to apply for your program through CFHI’s website.
