The paid fellowships will be offered to three graduate students from different disciplines who will explore various social enterprise models for innovations developed by University of Washington researchers.

The projects for the summer 2019 program are all based on the use of mobile and digital technologies to improve population health. All innovations are seeking novel ideas for how they can become financially sustainable while at the same time ensuring that the social impact of the work remains as important as revenue generation.

Fellows will each have primary responsibility for one project, but will be also expected to work as a team, with each fellow contributing their disciplinary expertise to the other projects. Eligible graduate and professional students from all UW schools and colleges are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due on April 8, 2019.
