Master's Fellowship Program

The mission of The Dr. Antronette (Toni) Yancey and Darlene Edgley Fellowship for Health Promotion, Physical Fitness and Community Health Education is to develop leaders of color who are committed to fighting obesity-related health disparities in underserved minority populations. We support their efforts to promote physical activity and other health promotion strategies through community-engaged research, innovative interventions, policy, systems, and environmental change. The Fellowship funds master level projects that integrate effective public health strategies to influence positive changes in the health of communities; specifically, reducing the disproportionately high risk of obesity and related chronic diseases (e.g. cancer, hypertension, diabetes, etc.) among underserved minority populations.  

Application deadline: TBD
