Applications Open to Graduate Students for KFF’s New Rowland Fellowship for Policy Research

KFF is seeking applications for the newly established Rowland Fellowship for Policy Research on Coverage and Access for Low-Income People in recognition of Emerita Executive Vice President Diane Rowland’s career contributions to the development of policy-relevant health research in the field. You are receiving this email as someone who may know of potential candidates for the Fellowship and we encourage sharing the details with your network.

The Rowland Fellowship will provide up to $15,000 in financial support for up to two full-time masters or doctoral students to conduct new research or analysis to inform a policy debate on coverage and access for low-income populations. The application period is now open with a submission deadline of April 15, 2020. Winners will be notified within one month by May 15, 2020.


For almost three decades of extraordinary service, Dr. Rowland helped to build KFF’s policy research on access and coverage of low-income people and became a national expert on these and other health policy issues while helping inform important debates at the state and federal levels of government. Along the way, she mentored many students and colleagues who are current and future leaders in the field. This fellowship seeks to honor her legacy to the field.

Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues, the Kaiser Family Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, California.
