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.

 

Information for Applying for the Rose Service Learning Fellowship (Fall 2020)

Students interested in applying for the Rose Service Learning Fellowship should review the 15-minute informational webinar  (slides available here).

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: During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is anticipated that travel expenses will not be allowable for Fall 2020 proposals, due to University coronavirus travel policy. However, Fellowships will still be awarded for service learning projects. The Fall 2020 funding cycle will reflect this change (see details below).

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.
