The University of New Mexico will award up to four Health Policy Doctoral Fellowships for students in the social sciences depending upon the availability of funding. The Health Policy Doctoral Fellowship is a doctoral fellowship program for Ph.D. students with educational and research interests that involve health disparities and health policy analysis and research. The University New Mexico seeks to increase the participation of the nation’s underrepresented groups (e.g., Hispanic, Native American, African American, etc.) in the development, implementation, and analysis of health policy. At the core of the University’s mission is the education of a new generation of leaders in health and health policy research, leaders whose backgrounds represent the full diversity of the U.S. population. Fellows are eligible to receive up to four years of funding support depending on funding availability, with funding including: a $5,000 scholarship awarded annually to support time required to attend fellowship training and $500.00 in travel support. These funds are intended to compliment research assistantships provided to fellows by their academic departments. Fellows will also have access to statistical and writing support staff, office space, and integration into a unique curriculum focused on health policy and racial equity with existing graduate fellows housed at the Center.
