The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program is accepting applications for the 2010-2011 fellowship year. The application deadline is April 15, 2010.
Supported by The Atlantic Philanthropies, the Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program represents a collaboration between the staff at the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene at Columbia Psychiatry and the American Political Science Association Congressional Fellowship Program. This national program seeks to provide professionals in health and aging with the experience and skills necessary to make a positive contribution to the development and implementation of health policies that affect older Americans. The program offers two different tracks: (1) a residential track that includes a nine-to-12-month placement in Washington, D.C. or at a state agency (as a legislative assistant in Congress, a professional staff member in an executive agency or in a policy organization); and (2) a non-residential track that includes a health policy project and brief placement(s) throughout the year at relevant sites. Core program components focused on career development and professional enrichment are provided for fellows in both tracks.
For further information and application, please visit www.healthandagingpolicy.org or contact Phuong Huynh, Deputy Director of the program (firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-543-6213) directly.
