The Fellows are:

A new generation of compassionate leaders and rigorous scholars who conduct research that produces knowledge about the social and environmental factors that not only affect health, but also lead to solutions that increase health equity.

The JPB Environmental Health Fellowship Award includes:

Funding that ranges between $50,000 to $250,000 over 3.5-years. Through an internal grant process, funding is awarded for research projects and participation in the program’s activities.

Together the Fellows create a cadre of like-minded individuals from across the U.S. who are committed to addressing health inequities in under- resourced communities.
