  • A statement of interest that details your motivation for a career in health policy, a description of what you hope to gain from the Fellowship, and how your experiences and education will complement the David A. Winston Health Policy Fellowship. The statement should not exceed 1,200 words.
  • Three letters of recommendation, one from a current faculty member, one from a current or former supervisor, employer, or preceptor, and one from an individual who is knowledgeable about your academic and/or leadership experience.
  • Academic transcripts (both undergraduate and graduate). Transcripts may be photocopies and need not be sent through the university. Online grade reports will not be accepted unless sent directly from the registrar. A key to interpret coding on transcripts must accompany transcripts that do not use the A-F grading format.
  • A narrative synopsis of your community involvement, including past and current extracurricular and volunteer activities in the community and on campus. The synopsis should not exceed 1,200 words.
