Fellows in this national leadership development program are researchers and community partners working together in three-person teams. Some are advancing existing projects; others represent new and unexpected collaborations that bring many perspectives to a critical issue. Individuals must apply as part of a team of three—two researchers and one community partner (teams can be newly formed or already existing). Researchers must have a terminal degree (PhD, MD, DrPH) or a master’s degree with extensive professional experience. The time commitment is approximately one day per week–approximately 20% FTE — for three years. To support the fellows’ time to participate in the program, each fellow will receive financial support of $25,000 per person for each year of the three-year program.
