Scholarship Description: The challenges we face in our public schools and public health systems, as well as in government at all levels, are too complicated to be solved without the insight and commitment of leaders with the highest-quality professional training.

The Zuckerman Fellowship provides recipients with full tuition and health insurance fees plus a stipend of $16,000 for one year.
