The Margaret E. Mahoney Fellowship program provides stipends for outstanding medical, dental, public health, public policy and graduate nursing students to conduct summer research projects on some aspect of health care delivery transformation for vulnerable populations and/or early childhood health and development, with an emphasis on policy implications.
Fellows will receive a stipend of $4,500, payable in two installments: 2/3 at the beginning of the program and 1/3 upon review of their final reports.
Eligible applicants must be students currently enrolled in medical, dental, public health, public policy or graduate nursing schools in the United States. They must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, or authorized to work in the U.S. throughout the award period.
Applicants must propose or request to be matched with a research project focusing on health policy (government policy at national/state/local level, institutional, or health facility policy) with clear objectives and a plan for achieving them that can be completed during a 10 week period. Please see the brief descriptions of the 2013 Mahoney Fellows’ projects on the NYAM website for examples of successful projects. The program also expects to offer matches at some or all of the following institutions: The New York Academy of Medicine policy, research and evaluation departments; the Center for State Health Policy at Rutgers University, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.
Projects must be conducted between June 9 and August 15, 2014 under the supervision of a senior professional mentor in an academic, government, or non-profit institution in the Greater New York/New Jersey area. Fellows are expected to work on their projects full-time during regular business hours for the entire 10 week period, and cannot undertake clinic or other school obligations at the same time.
