Fellowship Grant | Health Professional Students: Margaret E. Mahoney Fellowship Program
DEADLINE: MARCH 21, 2014
To honor the legacy of the late Margaret E. Mahoney, longtime president of the Commonwealth Fund, the fund, in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, New York Academy of Medicine, and other founding donors, has created a fellowship program for health professional students focused on transforming healthcare delivery systems for vulnerable populations and early childhood development and prevention.
Now in its second year and administered by NYAM, the Margaret E. Mahoney Fellowship Program provides stipends to support the participation of medical, dental, nursing, public health, and public policy students in eight- to ten-week research and policy projects focused on addressing the health needs of vulnerable urban populations. Projects must be conducted with or supervised by a senior professional mentor in an academic, government, or nonprofit institution in the Greater New York/New Jersey area.
In 2014, NYAM expects to award six $4,500 fellowships. No support for indirect costs or laboratory expenses is provided. Up to $500 may be available to fellows to reimburse certain program-related expenses for which receipts are submitted.
Eligible applicants must be students currently enrolled in a medical, dental, public health, public policy, or graduate nursing school in the United States. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, or authorized to work in the United States throughout the award period.
