Fellowship Stipend and Other Financial Support
Stipends for residential fellows vary and are commensurate with each individual’s current base salary (up to $100,000 annually). In addition to a stipend, financial support will be provided for relocation (up to $4,500), and health insurance, if not able to be covered by institution (up to $400/month). The program does not cover employment taxes, compensate for retirement savings, or adjust the stipend for cost-of-living differences.
Non-residential fellows (Global, National, Local) may receive up to $10,000 to cover approved placement related expenses and travel costs. It is expected that applicants will secure institutional, in-kind support that will allow them to commit 20% of their time to their policy project. Non-residential applicants who are early in their career and cannot secure full institutional, in-kind support for their fellowship participation may apply for partial salary support from the Health and Aging Policy Fellows program, up to a maximum of $15,000.
All Applicants must prepare a budget that reflects the institutional or other funding support available to the applicant to support participation in the Fellowship. The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program will supplement salary support to the extent that it is required and up to the limits indicated above.
Travel costs to fellowship-related meetings for all Fellows will be reimbursed by the National Program Office and are in addition to fellows’ stipends and non-residential fellows’ budgets. These expenses do not need to be included in the Applicants’ budgets.
