Health Equity Fellows Match

Health Equity Banner

Thank you for your interest in the Health Equity Fellowship 1:1 match program at the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing. Together, we can drive solutions to even the most complex and deeply rooted health inequalities, which are especially pronounced for people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, those with disabilities, low income or who live in rural areas.   

By participating in our limited-time match with a gift of $100,000 or more, you will be instrumental in: establishing new student and faculty fellowships to catalyze research in conjunction with Vanderbilt’s Center for Research on Inequality and Health; launching new opportunities for undergraduate students to immerse themselves in this important area of study; and, creating new pathways for the mentorship, fieldwork and community outreach that will ensure even more lasting and influential change for years to come.
