To honor the legacy of the late Commonwealth Fund president Margaret E. Mahoney, The Commonwealth Fund, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Carnegie Corporation, New York Academy of Medicine, and other founding donors created a fellowship program for health professional students, focused on transforming health care delivery systems for vulnerable populations and early childhood development and prevention.

Now in its second year, the Margaret E. Mahoney Fellowship Program provides stipends to support medical, dental, nursing, public health, and public policy students to participate in eight-to-10-week research and policy projects focused on addressing the health needs of vulnerable urban populations. Projects must be conducted with or supervised by a senior professional mentor in an academic, government, or nonprofit institution in the Greater New York/New Jersey area.
