APPLICANT REQUIREMENTS

Applicants must be:

  • Full-time doctoral students who are entering second-year of their program.
  • From underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • Pursuing a research-focused discipline that can advance a Culture of Health.
  • Interested in health policy and interdisciplinary approaches.

The best way to see who this program is for is to meet our first cohort of scholars. But keep in mind that this is just the start—the experience will only grow stronger as new scholars from many other backgrounds, disciplines and perspectives round out this growing group. Imagine yourself on the team!
