Applications open for Harkness Fellowship

The Commonwealth Fund invites promising mid-career professionals – government policymakers, academic researchers, clinical leaders, hospital and insurance managers and journalists – from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom – to apply for an opportunity to spend up to 12 months in the United States as a Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice.

Fellows work with leading US experts to study healthcare delivery reforms, and critical issues on the health policy agenda, in both the US and their home countries. A rich program of seminars organized by the fund throughout the year further enhances the fellowship experience. The Harkness Fellowship awards up to US$130,000 in support, with an additional family allowance of approximately US$60,000 for a partner and two children up to age 18.

Information about previous Harkness Fellows can be found here.

The deadline for applications from Australia is Tuesday 6 September 2016.
