Call for Applications
The Commonwealth Fund invites promising mid-career professionals—government policymakers, academic researchers, clinical leaders, hospital and insurance managers, and journalists—from Australia to apply for a unique opportunity to spend up to 12 months in the U.S. working with leading U.S. experts to study health care delivery reforms and critical issues on the health policy agenda in both the U.S. and their home countries. The Commonwealth Fund brings together the full class of Fellows—from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom—throughout the year to participate in a series of high level policy briefings and leadership seminars with health care leaders. Beginning 2016-17, the Fellowship awards up to U.S. $130,000 in support, with an additional supplemental family allowance of approximately $60,000.
