Conference Report

Princeton Conference Equity and Inclusion Fellowship

This fellowship program supports upcoming health policy professionals and recent graduates who are part of a historically excluded community based on race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, etc., to attend the Fall 2023 Princeton Conference in Boston. This year the conference will be at Babson University Conference Center on October 2-4, 2023. The goal is to foster engagement between recipients and the health policy world to further develop career interests and goals. Preferences will be given to applicants working in a health policy-related field who have not attended the conference before.

The Council on Health Care Economics and Policy's Princeton Conference is a national platform for health policy experts to present and debate critical issues annually. These discussions have led to multiple publications over the past two decades that have helped shape health policy policies and regulations in the United States. While our event is intentionally intimate to create space for deeper critical open conversations with all participants, these fellowships will further the diversity of attendees in terms of backgrounds and experiences.

We are offering two fellowship opportunities to attend the conference to upcoming health policy scholars from traditionally underrepresented communities. The fellowship will cover all travel, lodging, food, and conference fees. We will also work with fellowship recipients to create a tailored networking schedule where fellows will have multiple short meetings with key stakeholders in their health policy areas of interest.

 Applicants should submit the following information:


A great resume is succinct, easy to read, and includes your name, contact information, and your most relevant work, volunteer, leadership, and academic experience, with short descriptions of what you did in that position.


Please list two references with their names, current roles, contact information (email and phone number), and a brief 1-2 sentence note on your professional working experience and relationship to them.


In 250 words, answer the following question: How will attending the conference help you achieve your career goals?

When answering this question, please include a discussion of your policy interests and career goals. Be specific in how you think this opportunity could be helpful in your career trajectory.


We use this form to keep track of administrative data and contact information so we can contact you quickly and easily.

Read the directions and the questions on the form carefully, and ensure you’re submitting everything correctly before the deadline of July 1, 2023. The form can be found: here. For any questions on concerns, please contact Gabrielle Katz

Why this process?

  • We request a resume to verify participants' baseline understanding and experience with health policy issues to get the most out of the conference.
  • We request two references because it triangulates the information about your character, knowledge, and skills from another source.
  • We request one essay because it shows initiative, exemplifies the potential of the attendee to get the most out of the conference, and sets applicants apart.
  • Attendees must prepare themselves to attend our conference to get the most out of it. Applicants should consider how this experience will affect their future decisions and interests.
