About the Program
The California Endowment Scholars in Health Policy at Harvard University is a one-year, full-time, academic degree-granting program, designed to create health professional leaders capable of advancing multicultural health interests in the public, nonprofit, and academic sectors. The program is designed to incorporate the critical skills taught in schools of public health, government, business, and dental medicine. Scholars are required to complete the course requirements that lead to a master's degree in public health or in public administration, as well as receive advanced leadership training, including leadership forums and a seminar series conducted by leading scholars and nationally recognized leaders in minority health and public policy, site visits, shadowing public health leaders and supervised practicum. Each scholarship will provide support including a $50,000 stipend, full tuition for a master's degree, health insurance, books, travel and related expenses, and financial assistance toward the support of a practicum project.
