Applications open until Sep 30: Health Equity Fellowship for Trainees Program

Health Affairs — the nation’s leading journal of health policy thought and research — is seeking applications for its new program Health Equity Fellowship for Trainees.

The Fellowship is a part of Health Affairs’ national initiative to advance racial equity in health policy and health services scholarly publishing. Its objective is to value and increase the quality and quantity of equity-related research published in Health Affairs authored by members of racial and ethnic groups that have historically been underrepresented in scholarly publishing. The objective will be accomplished by offering fellows multi-layered mentorship from experienced Health Affairs authors and editorial staff for one-year. Mentors will work with fellows to make manuscript submissions by fellows more likely to be published in the journal.

To be eligible for Health Affairs’ Health Equity Fellowship for Trainees, you must:

  • Be a graduate-level (masters or doctoral) student, postdoctoral researcher, or early career researcher who is no more than seven years outside of having earned your graduate degree
  • Identify as American Indian/Native Alaskan, African American/Black, Asian American/Pacific Islander, and Hispanic/Latino (We strongly encourage applicants from minority-serving institutions such as Tribal Colleges and Universities, Non-tribal American Indian/Native Alaskan-Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Asian American and Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions with programs related to public health and health policy.)
  • Be engaged in health services research that advances racial health equity among historically marginalized populations
  • Working on a research project that is within one year of being submitted for publishing

The application period for the 2022 Health Equity Fellowship for Trainees begins August 10 and closes September 13 at 11:59pm PST.
