Health & Human Services Fellowships
The Health and Human Services Fellowship program aims to promote and support a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce and leadership pipeline in the local nonprofit sector.
About this Fellowship
In 2021, Independence Foundation and Philadelphia Health Partnership established the Health and Human Services Fellowships to attract recent Black Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) graduate students who have the potential to become future leaders in the Health and Human Services organizations currently funded by our Foundations.
Through the fellowship program, the Foundations provide funding to sponsoring health and human services grantee organizations for the compensation and employment benefits for the Fellows. The Foundation also contributes to loan repayment for Fellows with qualifying educational loans. Three fellowships are available each year. Two will be funded by Independence Foundation, and one will be funded by Philadelphia Health Partnership.
Applicants must have successfully completed a Master’s Degree in Nursing, Public Health, Mental/Behavioral Health, Health Policy, Social Work, Law Degree or other relevant areas and demonstrate a commitment to work in a Health and Human Services organization.
