Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice 2022
Are you interested in gaining an in-depth understanding of the US healthcare system and policy landscape, engaging in a series of leadership development activities and building a robust network for cross-national exchange and collaboration? If so, this call may be for you!
“The Commonwealth Fund’s Harkness Fellowships for 2023-24 provide a unique leadership development opportunity for mid-career research professionals who are committed to advancing health care policy and practice.
Co-funded in the UK by the NIHR, and Health Foundation, the Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice fund successful applicants to spend a year in the United States (US) conducting internationally comparative research with mentorship from leading US experts.
The Harkness Fellowship provides dedicated research funding to allow Fellows to:
- gain an in-depth understanding of the US healthcare system and policy landscape
- engage in a series of leadership development activities
- build a robust network for cross-national exchange and collaboration
Successful applicants will also become a member of the NIHR Academy – a community that provides access to events, networking, leadership development and online training.
The fellowship provides dedicated research funding and a monthly living stipend (approximately 6,700USD), plus round-trip airfare, support for relocation, health insurance coverage, and payment of U.S. federal and state withholding taxes. An additional family supplement is provided to Fellows accompanied by a partner and/or children under age 18.
Fellows are encouraged to seek salary support from their home-country employer, particularly if coming from a for-profit organisation. In some cases, Fellows may opt to arrange paid leave from their home institution (in lieu of receiving the monthly living stipend) to maintain their current income. If partial salary support is provided by a Fellow’s home institution, it will be supplemented by the Commonwealth Fund to meet the amount of the monthly living stipend.”
The call for applications closes on 01 November 2022.
