Community Health Research Fellowship

Advanced training in community health research

Application & Criteria

The Health Resource Service Administration (HRSA) funds the Community Health Research Fellowship. Federal guidelines restrict the fellowship to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Recent residency graduates can expect compensation of approximately $ 71,637 plus full coverage of the tuition fees at the Mailman School of Public Health. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from underrepresented minorities. The deadline for application submission for a fellowship commencing the following July is September 30.
