Barbara Jordan Health Policy Scholars Program-Due Dec 3rd

November 6, 2010

PROGRAM
The Barbara Jordan Health Policy Scholars Program brings talented college seniors and recent graduates to Washington, D.C., where they are placed in congressional offices and learn about health policy issues, with a focus on issues affecting racial and ethnic minority and underserved communities. Through the ten-week program (May 23, 2011 through August 6, 2011), Scholars gain knowledge about federal legislative procedure and health policy issues, while further developing their critical thinking and leadership skills. In addition to gaining experience in a congressional office, Scholars participate in seminars and site visits to augment their knowledge of health care issues, and write and present a health policy research memo that addresses a problem of concern to disadvantaged populations.

PURPOSE
The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation established the Barbara Jordan Health Policy Scholars Program at Howard University to honor the legacy of former Foundation Trustee and Congresswoman Barbara Jordan and to expand the pool of students in the field of health policy who are interested in issues affecting racial and ethnic minority and underserved communities. As a member of the United States Congress and the Texas State Legislature, Barbara Jordan’s distinguished career was exemplified by her tireless advocacy of behalf of vulnerable populations. She brought this passion to her work, inspiring others to become involved in addressing challenging health policy issues.

Eligible candidates must be U.S. citizens who will be a senior or a recent  graduate (a person who graduated in September 2008 or later) of an accredited  U.S. college or university in the fall of 2011. Graduate students and individuals with an advanced degree are not eligible to apply.  Successful applicants will show evidence of academic achievement and will demonstrate the following: Be a member of a population that is adversely affected by racial or ethnic disparities in health; and/or Have  experience working in or with programs that address health issues  disproportionately affecting racial and ethnic minorities or underserved  communities (e.g. local health departments, community health centers,  inner city/rural hospitals or organizations that conduct research on or  develop policy related to health or healthcare disparities) or have done  previous academic work (e.g. taken courses, written papers or  participate in research projects) related to health disparities.

NIH Supports Research Careers by Repaying Student Loan Debt
Programs Help Increase the Pipeline of Scientists Addressing the Diseases and Disorders Affecting the Nation

NIH is now accepting applications for its extramural Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs), and is letting applicants know through it awareness-raising campaign slogan that “You do the research. NIH will repay your student loans.”

The LRPs repay up to $35,000 of educational loan debt annually for individuals who commit to conducting at least two years of qualified biomedical or behavioral research at a nonprofit institution of their choice. The annual application cycle started Sept. 1 and will continue until Dec. 1, 2008, for the five extramural LRPs: Clinical Research, Pediatric Research, Health Disparities Research, Contraception and Infertility Research, and Clinical Research for Individuals from Disadvantaged Backgrounds.

“The purpose of these programs is to recruit and retain highly-qualified health professionals as scientific investigators,” explained Norka Ruiz Bravo, Ph.D., NIH deputy director for extramural research. “Expanding the pool of researchers is critical to the health of our nation, and the LRPs play an important role in researcher retention.” Participants receive loan repayment benefits and tax offsets, which serve as one means of helping them remain in the scientific workforce.

Each year, some 1,600 research scientists benefit from the more than $70 million NIH invests in their careers through the extramural LRPs. On average, approximately 40 percent of all new LRP applications are funded.

Applicants often learn about the LRPs from colleagues, faculty, and mentors, and many applicants report that having a mentor was an important factor in developing a successful application. To qualify for the LRPs, applicants must possess a doctoral-level degree (except for the Contraception and Infertility Research LRP); devote at least 20 hours per week to research funded by a domestic nonprofit organization or federal, state, or local government entity; have educational loan debt equal to or exceeding 20 percent of their institutional base salary; and be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) — The Nation’s Medical Research Agency — includes 27 Institutes and Centers and is a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is the primary federal agency for conducting and supporting basic, clinical and translational medical research, and it investigates the causes, treatments, and cures for both common and rare diseases.
