PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

As part of our long history of supporting non-profit health and human services organizations in the Philadelphia area, the Independence Foundation and Philadelphia Health Partnership are establishing a Health and Human Services Fellowship. The purpose of the Fellowship is to attract diverse and accomplished graduate students to work with grantees funded by our foundations. Graduate students must have the potential to become future leaders in the health and human services organizations.

Through the Fellowship Program, the Foundations will provide funding to a sponsoring health and welfare grantee organization for the compensation and employment benefits for recent graduates of master’s degree programs in relevant fields such as Nursing, Public Health, Social Work, or Law Degrees. The Foundation also contributes to educational loan repayment for Fellows with qualifying educational loads.
