Scholars learn an approach to research that is fostered by the program’s collaborative culture, which encourages skepticism, creativity, critical thinking, and early stakeholder engagement to assure relevance of research.

Scholars are expected to conduct two to three research projects during their fellowship, yielding at least two manuscripts. This work provides Scholars with the opportunity to develop important research questions, frame hypotheses, collect and analyze data, interpret evidence, and communicate results through oral presentations and written papers.

In the second year of fellowship, Scholars have the opportunity to select one of four research tracks, based upon their interests and learning objectives. Click here to learn more about the research tracks offered.
