BANGKOK, Thailand – April 15, 2021
AIP Foundation Senior Project Officer, Ms. Sumalee Pratoomnun was accepted as one of five fellows for the first Global Road Safety Leadership Course Alumni (GRSLC) Fellowship Program. The 2021-2022 Alumni Fellowship is carried out in collaboration with Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit, Johns Hopkins University and Global Road Safety Partnership.
The first Global Road Safety Leadership Course: Alumni Fellowship Program will run from April 2021 to April 2022. This Fellowship is aimed at increasing the capacity of road safety professionals in low- and middle-income countries to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice through a mentored road safety project.
Through the Alumni Fellowship Programme, fellows will be partnered with a primary mentor from the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) or Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU). The mentors will provide ongoing support throughout the duration of the initiative and share their connections to a broader network of road safety leaders. Upon completion of the Fellowship, participants will be awarded a certificate of completion jointly from GRSP and JH-IIRU.
In 2021, the Alumni Fellowship Program will be delivered remotely. The Fellowship Program has been designed to encompass three related elements. The first is participation in a road safety and leadership capacity-building program. The second element is based on the development and implementation of a road safety project. With this project, fellows will benefit from access to world-leading mentors that will provide technical guidance and support for the duration of the project. The third and final element, the alumnae will join the faculty of the GRSLC and assist with the delivery of a virtual Initiative Partners Course in collaboration with Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit, Johns Hopkins University, and the GSRP.
These elements as part of the Fellowship Programme will provide an immersive experience that will continue to solidify the alumni’s road safety profile and expertise on a global scale.
