Rose Service Learning Fellowship

The Rose Service Learning Fellowships are funded by a generous gift from Dr. Deborah Rose, SM ’75, to support students and post-doctoral fellows at Harvard Chan to travel and engage in service learning projects.

While typically most awards fund international travel, some awards are also made for U.S.-based projects, including in the Boston area. There are currently two funding cycles per year, in the fall and spring.

COVID-19 Special Note: Applicants considering travel outside the Boston area should review University coronavirus travel policy.

The Rose Service Learning Fellowships will fund rigorous service learning projects, which are designed to:

  • Address community-identified needs, working in partnership with the community and partner organization(s).
  • Develop and strengthen reciprocal partnerships between Harvard Chan and the organizations and communities in which the service learning projects take place.
  • Help Fellowship recipients develop community-oriented competencies that will enhance their future work as public health leaders, including a deeper commitment to health equity and social justice, and social responsibility.
