Civic Health Fellows Application (Coming Soon)
Once applications have opened, applicants will be contacted to set-up virtual interviews.
Applications open each year during the fall semester, and require a virtual interview as part of the application process. Selected students will receive a fellowship agreement to complete and sign before attending our orientation event:
Each fellow will design and implement a civic health project on campus or in their local community, beginning with submission of a project proposal that includes:
Fellows can begin project implementation once their proposals have been approved. Proposals will have a set deadline, but can be submitted earlier for expedited approval.
In the spring, fellows will travel to Washington, D.C. to present findings from their projects during our Civic Health Fellows Summit. The dates for the summit will be announced during the orientation session for fellows each fall.
All lodging and most meals will be provided for fellows while attending the summit. Fellows arrange their own transportation to and from DC, but are permitted to use a portion of their grant funding to help subsidize the cost of travel.
A detailed agenda will be provided to all fellows closer to the dates of the summit, but a tentative agenda is available below for planning purposes:
Arrival in DC (Early Afternoon)
Project Panel Presentations
Workshops & Speakers
Executive Branch Meeting
Evening Event in DC
Hill Meetings w/House & Senate Offices
Civic Health Fellows Congressional Briefing
Departure from DC (Early Evening)
Attendance at the summit is required for all fellows. If conditions are unsafe for travel or in-person events, the summit will be held virtually.
