The Commonwealth Fund, in collaboration with
Call for Applications
invites promising mid-career
professionals – government policymakers, academic
researchers, clinical leaders, senior hospital and
insurance managers, and journalists – from Germany
to apply for a unique opportunity to spend up to 12
months in the U.S. working with leading experts to
study health care delivery system reforms and critical
issues on the health policy agenda in both the U.S.
and Germany. Further enriching the program, The
Commonwealth Fund brings together the full class
of fellows — from Australia, Canada, France, Germany,
the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the U.K.
— throughout the year to participate in a series of
high level policy briefings and leadership seminars
with health care leaders.
Each fellowship provides up to U.S. $130,000
which covers roundtrip airfare to the
U.S., living allowance, project-related travel, travel
to fellowship seminars, health insurance, and U.S.
federal and state taxes. A family supplement (i.e.,
approximately $60,000 for a partner and two children
up to age 18) is also provided to cover airfare, living
allowance, and health insurance.
