McMaster Health Forum | Student Fellowships


Are you a senior undergraduate student aspiring to be a health- or social-system leader? The Forum’s Fellowship in Strengthening Health and Social Systems is an exceptional, year-long opportunity to be part of the Forum community. This program allows McMaster students to study while also participating actively in the work of the Forum. Fellows are exposed to influential doers and thinkers, contribute to Forum products and events, have the opportunity to develop and implement their own signature project, and complete an internship in a government ministry or an international agency.

The Forum issues a call for applications in February, with positions starting the following September. Some scholarship support is provided.

Learn more about our current and past Fellows and the range of activities they have been involved in.
