Health and Aging Policy Fellows (HAPF)
Fellowships to USA and Territories professionals in a range of disciplines to participate in a year-long professional development and enrichment program in the fields of aging and healthcare policy. The fellowship program offers training in communications, professional networking, and current policy issues, providing fellows with the necessary skills and experience to change health and aging policy. The aim of the program is to ultimately improve the health care of older adults.
The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program aims to create a cadre of leaders who will serve as change agents in health and aging policy. The goal of the program is to provide professionals in health and aging with the experience and skills necessary to help lead this effort, and in so doing, shape a healthy and productive future for older Americans.
The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program offers two different tracks for individual placement:
In addition, through a partnership with the veterans health administration, VA employees can participate in the VA track as a non-residential fellow.
Core program components focused on career development and professional enrichment are provided for fellows in all tracks. Mentoring constitutes an important component of the program, and will be provided through a range of sources. The program also includes participation in orientations, workshops, retreats, and parliamentary exchanges.
The Program awards fellowships for individuals to advance their careers in gerontology. Residential and non-residential tracks are available for individual placement. Fellows are provided with the skills, content, and hands-on experience to be able to offer policy solutions to the health challenges of an increasingly aging population and the barriers to the healthcare system that serves them.
GrantWatch ID#: 179606
Generally between 10-15 fellows are selected per year.
Stipends for residential fellows vary and are commensurate with each individual’s current base salary (up to $100,000 annually). In addition to a stipend, financial support will be provided for relocation (up to $4,500), and health insurance, if not able to be covered by the institution (up to $400/month). The program does not cover employment taxes, compensate for retirement savings, or adjust the stipend for cost-of-living differences.
Non-residential fellows may receive up to $10,000 to cover approved project-related expenses and travel costs. It is expected that applicants will secure institutional, in-kind support that will allow them to commit 20% of their time to their policy projects. Non-residential applicants who are early in their career and cannot secure full institutional, in-kind support for their fellowship participation may apply for partial salary support from the Health and Aging Policy Fellows program, up to a maximum of $15,000.
