The Commonwealth Fund's Harkness Fellowships 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 robust 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, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.
Program Update: The 2024–25 Harkness Fellowship application will open in early June 2023 and remain active through early November 2023 (exact dates to be determined). You can join our email list to receive updates about upcoming information sessions and the application release date.
