The Commonwealth Fund's Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice provide a unique opportunity for individuals who are committed to advancing health care policy and practice to spend a year in the United States conducting internationally comparative research with mentorship from leading U.S. experts. Alongside their research, Fellows engage in a series of leadership development activities, gain an in-depth understanding of the U.S. health care system and policy landscape, and build a network for cross-national exchange and collaboration. The program is open to eligible individuals from the following countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom.

Program Update: The 2022–23 Harkness Fellowship application will open in late spring 2021 and remain open through the fall. Because of the pandemic, for 2022–23 we are accepting applications from six countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom. We encourage interested individuals from Australia and Canada to join our email list and consider applying in the future. We anticipate that the application cycle for 2023–24 will include Australia and Canada, and we hope some new countries as well!
