Health Policy Research Scholars (HPRS) is a national leadership development program for full-time students working on a doctoral degree. The program seeks applications from full-time students who are from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds whose racial, socioeconomic, ability, status, and personal factors allow them to bring unique and diverse perspectives to their research. Applicants must be entering the first or second year of their doctoral program at the time of enrollment in the program.
