The Commonwealth Fund's Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice for 2022-23 provide a unique leadership development opportunity for mid-career research professionals who are committed to advancing healthcare policy and practice. Co-funded in the UK by the NIHR and The Health Foundation, the Harkness Fellowships funds successful applicants to spend a year in the United States (US) conducting internationally comparative research with mentorship from leading US experts. The fellowship provides dedicated research funding and a generous living stipend, including round-trip airfare, a fixed monthly stipend for living expenses, health insurance coverage, and payment of US federal and state withholding taxes. An additional family supplement is provided to fellows accompanied by a partner and/or children under the age of 18. For more information and to apply visit the NIHR website. Applications close on 1 November 2021.


The Commonwealth Fund is also seeking the nomination of candidates for the Harkness Fellowships. Anyone who knows a suitable applicant should fill in the nomination form.
