Health Equity Fellowship For Trainees

Application Deadline: September 13 at 11:59pm PST

The Fellowship is a part of Health Affairs’ national initiative to advance racial equity in health policy and health services scholarly publishing. Its objective is to value and increase the quality and quantity of equity-related research published in Health Affairs authored by members of racial and ethnic groups that have historically been underrepresented in scholarly publishing. The objective will be accomplished by offering fellows multi-layered mentorship from experienced Health Affairs authors and editorial staff for one year (from January 2022 to December 2022). Mentors will work with fellows to make manuscript submissions by fellows more likely to be published in the journal.


To be eligible for Health Affairs’ Health Equity Fellowship for Trainees, you must:

  • Be a graduate-level (masters, PhD, MD, JD, etc.) student, postdoctoral researcher, or early career researcher who is no more than seven years outside of having earned your graduate degree
  • Identify as American Indian/Native Alaskan, African American/Black, Asian American/Pacific Islander, and Hispanic/Latino (We strongly encourage applicants from minority-serving institutions such as Tribal Colleges and Universities, Non-tribal American Indian/Native Alaskan-Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and Asian American and Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions with programs related to public health and health policy.)
  • Be engaged in health services research that advances racial health equity among historically marginalized populations
  • Be working on a research project at a U.S.-based institution or organization that is within one year of being submitted for publishing

Application Procedure

Items required for the application include:

  • One-page cover letter (stating why you should be selected)
  • Abstract of proposed manuscript (will accept draft manuscript, but not required)
  • Enrollment verification (for students and postdocs only)
  • One recommendation letter from someone with whom you have engaged in research
