Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice

Group of Harkness Fellows

The Commonwealth Fund's Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice provide a unique opportunity for mid-career health services researchers and practitioners from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom to spend up to 12 months in the United States, conducting original research and working with leading U.S. health policy experts.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision not to put out a standard call for applications for the 2021-22 Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice.

Individuals who were selected for a 2020-21 Harkness Fellowship have been given the option to defer their start date until August/September 2021. As a result, the Fund will not be accepting applications from across the eight participating countries. Should this change, any new information will be shared here as soon as these decisions are finalized.

The next standard call for applications, for the 2022-23 Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice, will be announced in spring 2021.
