Applying a Health Policy Lens to Research to Advance Health and Equity in Communities

Health Policy Research Scholars (HPRS) is looking for full-time doctoral students who are entering their second year of study in Fall 2018 from any and all disciplines – as diverse as economics, engineering, environmental health, political science, psychology, and sociology – who want to apply a health policy lens to their research to advance health and equity in their communities. This program is designed for students who do not have a policy or public health background.

The HPRS program is intentionally designed for students from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds, i.e., those students whose ethnicity, socioeconomic status, ability, and other factors allow them to bring unique and diverse perspectives to their research. Those selected for the program can expect to spend about 4 hours per week on program activities during online courses. In-person meetings are also required that may range from a few days during the academic year to up to 3 weeks during summers. To support this time commitment, HPRS provides each scholar with financial support of $30,000 per year.

HPRS is a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, led by The George Washington University. Learn more about:

  • the program by attending an hour-long informational webinar on February 1, 2018 at 12:00 noon ET. RSVP.
  • other Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leadership opportunities on January 23, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. ET. Register here.

Applications for the Health Policy Research Scholars program are due by March 14, 2018.
