Eight MPH 65 students in the Health & Social Behavior field of study were awarded Rose Service Learning Fellowships to fund their MPH practicum projects this summer. In addition, one PhD PHS student (Ryan Keen) in the Social and Behavioral Sciences field of study was awarded the 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 most awards are for 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.
