The Health Policy Research Scholars (HPRS) Program is a leadership program that trains full-time doctoral students from populations underrepresented in specific disciplines and/or marginalized backgrounds as leaders in health policy. These groups include racial and ethnic populations, as well as individuals from socioeconomically disadvantaged and underserved backgrounds, and students with disabilities. The purpose of this program is to support and enhance the doctoral training of students from different disciplines who are committed to advancing the Culture of Health as well as encourage students to participate in interdisciplinary research that impacts health policy. The program provides training in health policy, leadership, communications, and equity, and offers mentorship, coaching, social support and networking opportunities to enhance their success. Scholars remain at their home institutions located across the United States and mainly participate via online education, although the Program offers required and optional in-person sessions throughout the year.
