Charities Fellowship Program

In May 2006, the Center for Community-Based Research established its Fellowship Program, and the first fellowship was the Community Health Information System’s (CHIS) Fellowship, awarded to a pre-doctoral student in Public Health and Informatics for two years. The goal of the Fellowship Program is to offer expanded opportunities for the fellow to develop expertise through mentored research and knowledge transfer that can eventually benefit the community. 

The fellowship partners the research needs of the Charities with the research expertise of the fellow to produce projects that benefit both. For example, the first CHIS Fellow enhanced the development of the CHIS’ Project Safety Net, an interactive Web-based portal that promotes easier access to healthcare services for those most in need.

The fellowship’s primary objective is to provide the fellow with opportunities to develop expertise through mentored research and knowledge transfer for the community’s benefit.

Through research-informed grantmaking to Texas nonprofits, St. Luke's Episcopal Health Charities, a separate component of St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System, improves community health and reduces health disparities.  Our Center for Community-Based Research is dedicated to community-based participatory research practices that foster informed action, collaboration and empowerment for the medically underserved and other vulnerable populations.
