The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Health Policy Fellows program provides the nation’s most comprehensive fellowship experience at the nexus of health science, policy and politics in Washington, D.C. It is an outstanding opportunity for exceptional midcareer health professionals and behavioral and social scientists with an interest in health and health care policy promoting the health of the nation. Fellows participate in the policy process at the federal level and use that leadership experience to improve health, health care and health policy.

Up to six awards of up to $165,000 each will be made in 2015. Fellowship funds of up to $104,000 may be used for the residential stay (not to exceed the fellow’s salary prior to entering the program) from September 1, 2015 through August 31, 2016. The continuation of fringe benefits at levels corresponding to the level of stipend support being requested may be covered with the award, and sponsoring institutions may supplement fellowship funds.

Visit the RWJF website for more information on the application and key dates. The deadline for applications is November 13, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
