Health Policy Research Scholars is a four-year leadership program for full-time doctoral students from disciplines that have a direct impact on health policy such as economics, sociology, public health and political science. Recognizing the need for far greater diversity in future generations of researchers and policymakers so that policies and solutions can be more inclusive and relevant, Health Policy Research Scholars is specifically designed for doctoral students from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds. Scholars in the program are committed to learning, leading in new ways, and collaborating across fields and sectors. They believe in applying their research, in real time, to challenge entrenched systems and finding new solutions to our nation’s most pressing health challenges.
RWJF is looking for organizations that are aligned with the vision and goals of Health Policy Research Scholars, and that have experience developing and/or mentoring doctoral students from diverse backgrounds.
