2017-18 HARKNESS FELLOWSHIPS
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
in HEALTH CARE POLICY and PRACTICE
The Commonwealth Fund 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 in support, 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.
