Emotional Well-Being and Physical Health Summer Short Course Tuition Fellowship


Applications due

April 15, 2023. Fellowship awardees will be notified in late April. 

The Network for Emotional Well-being: Science, Practice, and Measurement, a collaborative project between UCSF, UC Berkeley, and Harvard, is offering 4 tuition fellowship awards. The awards will support early career researchers – post docs and junior faculty (Assistant Professors or equivalent) -- interested in joining our intensive summer short course exploring the linkages between emotional well-being and physical health outcomes. The course is jointly hosted by the Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Research Department of Behavioural Science and Health at University College London (UCL). The 2023 course will be held in person on Harvard University's campus in Cambridge, MA, July 10-14, 2023.


The Summer Short Course Tuition Fellowship will cover the entirety of tuition fees ($2,500 USD) for 4 scholars to attend the course in the summer of 2022. These tuition fellowships are specifically intended for underrepresented scholars, as defined by NIH, which includes racial/ethnic identity, disability, and under-resourced backgrounds (SES). Fellowship awardees will be responsible for all costs associated with travel, accommodation, and related incidental expenses.


NOTE: You do not need to apply for the summer short course and the tuition fellowship separately. You will opt-in for consideration for the fellowship as part of the summer short course application and submit any additional information at the same time. If you are not selected to receive a tuition fellowship, you can still be accepted into the course, and join at your own expense.
