The Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy is fortunate in its ability to support several fellowship and tuition stipend opportunities due to the gracious gifts of several benefactors. Please click on an opportunity below for more information:
The Ray E. Brown Fellowships are awarded over the summer to an incoming student from each of the participating GPHAP schools who are also seeking admission to GPHAP, while at the University of Chicago. All applications are reviewed by the GPHAP Director and GPHAP Faculty Committee. The applicants are considered based on their commitment and passion to the health care field, their demonstrated understanding of the value of interdisciplinary, collaborative approaches, and the student's ability and willingness to take a leadership role in the program. The Ray E. Brown Recruitment Fellowship application is now integrated with the GPHAP application. Students must apply for the Ray E. Brown Recruitment Fellowship at the time they apply for GPHAP before entering their first year.

The Quern Endowment awards fellowships to first-year GPHAP students to support summer field work, internships, or independent projects aimed at developing students' leadership skills in the field of health policy and management. Such projects or internships are designed and initiated by individual students and must be independent of any formal field work assignment, internship, or summer job arranged by one of the professional schools. Innovative projects or new initiatives based in the Chicago area, or those involving some collaboration of the public and private sectors, are especially encouraged, though projects can be conducted outside the Chicago area as well.
The objective of the Quern Fellowship is to foster innovative thinking and leadership in GPHAP students who wish to pursue creative and self-initiated health related projects over the summer between their first and second years. All first year, full-time GPHAP students who are in good academic standing and up to date on their GPHAP requirements are eligible to apply. Proposed projects must be student-initiated and not part of a pre-established or existing internship.
Interested students must submit a complete application to the GPHAP director by the first Monday after the spring quarter break.

The Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy partners with the University of Chicago Medical Center and local primary care clinics to offer GPHAP students a range of summer internships in health care administration. Projects change from year to year but are intended to provide students with a specific experience in health care organization management while exposing them to the broader and complex aspects of health care administration.
All full-time GPHAP students are eligible to apply contingent upon both: a) taking the first required GPHAP course, SSA 47512, Introduction to the U.S. Health System, (or the new required course for global health track students, International Perspectives on Social Policy and Practice) during the spring quarter of their first year and b) being current with all GPHAP requirements such as co-curricular summaries. Interested students must complete an Internship Interest Form, typically towards the end of the winter quarter.
For more information please contact the GPHAP Director.

The Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy (GPHAP) would like to encourage collaboration between students and faculty interested in health policy. To this end, GPHAP sponsors internships and research assistant positions for health-related research.
GPHAP provides funding for up to 100 hours per student per academic year. By providing funding for the initial work, it is hoped that GPHAP's research assistant and internship program will connect students to faculty involved with health related activities and facilitate longer termed projects. This is a great opportunity to not only earn some extra money, but to:
Each quarter new projects are identified, and GPHAP students are eligible to apply for positions throughout the academic year, depending on enrollment levels.
