Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice, 2008–09


Support for an 11th class of Harkness Fellows in Health Care Policy and Practice will allow the Fund to continue to develop promising policy researchers and practitioners from Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The inaugural class of German Harkness Fellows began their tenure in September 2006, and a new partnership with the Robert Bosch Foundation will provide support for a second German Harkness Fellow each year, beginning in 2007. To maintain the program's competitiveness and broaden its policy impact, program changes are planned beginning with the 2008–09 class: an increase in the value of a Harkness Fellowships award from $95,000 to $107,000, the addition of a research and travel supplement for Canadian Associates, and the expansion of the fellowships to the Netherlands. As fellows return home, publish their findings, and move into leadership positions, they demonstrate their positive influence on health policy and practice.
