RESOURCE GUIDE

A guide for grantmakers and grantseekers, scholarships, fellowships and financial aid compiled by Natalia Kanem (formerly of Ford Foundation, currently President of The ELMA Philanthropies Services (U.S.) Inc., with the assistance of Laurie Norton

 Please note that all fellowship programs have their own individual guidelines and, therefore, a few of those mentioned may no longer be in effect by the time you receive this. We suggest that you contact your institution's financial aid office, the chairman of your department, and the Department of Education or the public higher education agency in your state for assistance and guidance regarding grants, loans, and work-study programs.  Additional information may also be found in your college/university library and the public libraries.

Program:  The Scholars Program brings talented African American, Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander and American Indian/Alaska Native college seniors and recent graduates to Washington, DC, where they work in congressional offices and learn about health policy.

Purpose:  The Kaiser Family Foundation established the Scholars Program to honor the legacy of late U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, who was a Foundation Trustee, and to expand the pool of students of color interested in the field of health policy.

Structure:  Through the nine-week program (June 1 - July 30, 2004), Scholars gain knowledge about federal legislative procedure and health policy issues, while  further developing their critical thinking and leadership skills. In addition to an internship in a congressional office, Scholars participate in seminars and site visits to augment their knowledge of health care issues, and write and present a health policy research paper. The program is based at Howard University.

Eligibility:  Eligible candidates must be U.S. citizens who are members of a racial/ethnic minority group and will be seniors or recent graduates of an accredited U.S. college or university in the fall of 2004. Candidates are selected based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership potential and interest in health policy.

Compensation:  Scholars receive approximately $5,000 in support, which includes a stipend, daily expense allowance, airfare and lodging.
