The application deadline for the Kellogg Health Scholars Program’s 2009-2011 Call for Applications is on Wednesday, December 3, 2008 (11:59 p.m. Eastern). ONLY online applications are accepted, www.kellogghealthscholars.org.

Through this two-year postdoctoral program, scholars develop as leaders with research expertise to add to our knowledge about the nature of social disparities in health and interventions to reduce those disparities, the capacity to partner with communities in carrying out research and building policy advocacy and the skills to inform and support policy makers who seek to reduce and eliminate health disparities.

The program consists of two tracks and offers fellowships at eight training sites. The Community Track, which highlights community-based participatory research and relationships between academe, community and public health practice, has fellowships at Johns Hopkins University, Morgan State University, the University of Michigan and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The Multidisciplinary Track, which highlights a multidisciplinary approach to studying the social determinants of health disparities, has scholars training at Harvard University, the University of California-San Francisco, the University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Nine individuals will be selected for the 2009-2011 fellowship cycle – five in the Community Track and four in the Multidisciplinary Track. Each fellowship will provide a stipend of $62,000 in the first year and $63,000 in the second year, and an annual research fund and other benefits.
