What’s New in 2019?

We’re selecting a new national program center for Health Policy Research Scholars, which will oversee all aspects of the program. As we make this transition, we will not recruit a cohort in 2019. Current scholars will continue to have the same high-quality experience they’ve come to expect, and we look forward to welcoming the next cohort.

Applications re-open in 2020. In 2020, we will accept up to 60 rising second- and third-year doctoral students from fields that have a direct impact on health policy, including economics, political science, ecology, sociology, and many others.

That means if you will be a second-year student in the 2019-2020 school year and were planning to apply in 2019, you will still be eligible to apply in 2020.

If you will be a second-year doctoral student in the 2020-2021 school year, you will also be eligible to apply in 2020. We expect to enroll up to 40 rising second-year doctoral students each cohort after 2020.
