The Commonwealth Fund is looking for applicants for the Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice. The closing date for 2016-2017 is November 16, 2015 for Dutch applicants. The fellowships provide a unique opportunity for mid-career health services researchers and practitioners to spend up to 12 months in the United States, conducting original research and working with leading U.S. health policy experts.
Each fellowship will provide up to $ 130,000 in support, which covers round trip airfare to the United States, a living allowance, funds for project-related travel, research, and conferences, travel to attend The Commonwealth Fund program of fellowship seminars, health insurance, and U.S. and state taxes.

The mission of The Commonwealth Fund is to promote a high performing health care system that achieves better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency, particularly for society's most vulnerable.
