NAGTRI/RWJF Public Health Fellowship Program
The Public Health Fellowship Program will bring together a group of 8 Public Health Law Fellows to collaborate on the completion of a class project in the form of a research paper. The specific topic of the class project will be decided by a committee made up of representatives designated by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG).
The first phase of the program will be conducted in Washington, DC and last 1 week. In addition to working on the class project, Fellows will have the opportunity to meet with and be briefed by various US and state officials, as well as representatives from NGOs. Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in a host of cultural activities to encourage formation of friendships and networking. The participants will depart from Washington, DC and continue to work on their papers in their home states. Three months after the initial phase the Fellows will meet in New York City, NY for approximately 2 days. In NYC, participants will have the opportunity to discuss findings and conclusions at a panel discussion at a local law school.
In addition to completing an online nomination each applicant must send, via email to email@example.com, a 1-2 page essay describing the topic they have chosen and how they think research into that topic will benefit their office and the public health community at large.
Scholarship assistance will be made available for each registered participant.
