What do Scholars do?
Our past Scholars have worked on a variety of projects in close collaboration with Alliance faculty and staff. Examples include analysis of policies related to reducing barriers to data; identifying opportunities to promote gender equity research and programming; and writing original articles on health equity. Each cohort of Scholars is instrumental to advancing our thematic research and knowledge. You can find more about those projects here.
