Committed to advancing health care studies, the New York Academy of Medicine awards over $400,000 in grants and fellowships to medical students and researchers every year. One of these fellowships is the Margaret E. Mahoney Fellowship in Health Policy.
The fellowship sponsors medical students in a summer research project focused on transforming health care delivery for populations that are under-served through policy changes. The fellowship supports each student to the tune of $6,000 to cover his/her living expenses.
Eligible students propose a relevant research project and once accepted into the program, they work full-time for 10 weeks on their research projects. To complement their research, students participate in enrichment activities such as policy workshops, leadership workshops, career panels, and media training.
To be eligible for the fellowship, applicants must be enrolled in a master’s program with a specialty in medicine, dentistry, graduate nursing, public health, or public policy. They must be US citizens, permanent residents, or people authorized to work in the country during that period.
