Each Harkness Fellowship awards up to U.S. $130,000, which covers:

  • Roundtrip airfare to the United States;
  • A fixed monthly stipend for U.S. living expenses;
  • Set up and shipping allowances;
  • Support toward the portion of the project conducted in the home country, if appropriate;
  • Funds for project-related travel, case studies, conferences and research expenses;
  • Travel funds to attend seminars including:  Harkness Fellows Orientation, Commonwealth Fund International Symposium on Health Care Policy; Washington Health Policy Briefing; Final Reporting Seminar; and AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting;
  • Institutional allowance for U.S. mentor/placement;
  • Health insurance coverage while in the United States;
  • U.S. and state taxes.

A supplemental allowance of approximately $60,000 —including roundtrip airfare, living allowance, and health insurance—is also provided to Fellows accompanied by a spouse and/or children up to age 18.

In some cases, Fellows may opt to arrange paid leave from their home institution in lieu of the fellowship monthly stipend to maintain their current income. Where partial home institution salary support is provided during the fellowship, a monthly supplement is available.
