About the Milbank Memorial Fund

The Milbank Memorial Fund is a nonpartisan, trusted foundation focused on improving the health of communities and health equity. Our work is guided by core values to collaboration and community; diversity, equity, and inclusion; humility and optimism; objectivity and non-partisanship; and stewardship and leadership.

For more than 100 years, the Fund has connected leaders with the expertise of policymakers and the evidence that they need to advance policies and practices that improve health. For more information, visit www.milbank.org.

Of particular relevance to your participation to MFP, we invite you to review the Fund’s Racial Equity Statement of Purpose, which was developed over the course of this year. In this statement, the organization apologizes for some of its past actions that have perpetuated systemic racism and outlines actions that reflect its commitment to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, both within and outside the organization.

About the Milbank Fellows Program

The Milbank Memorial Fund believes that state leaders are the drivers of innovation and improvement in population health. We are committed to equipping and supporting leaders in the executive and legislative branches of state government with the knowledge, leadership capacities, and connections to navigate the complexities of systems and health policy to advance population health. The Milbank Fellows Program (MFP) is our newest offering to support state health leaders.

Through this program fellows will:

• Gain new knowledge about specific population health issues, interdisciplinary health and human services systems, and evidence-based approaches to improving population health;

• Expand their personal insight and leadership capacities in support of defining and advancing a population health vision and agenda;

• Create meaningful connections with a network of colleagues, both from within the cohort and the Milbank State Leadership Network, so they can leverage their new knowledge and capacities to take action in their state.

Fellow Selection Process

The Fund will select up to 24 participants for the 2023-2024 Milbank Fellows Program cohort. To express interest in the program, please complete this form. If our selection team determines you would be good fit for the program, we will ask for a resume and an interview.
