The Finger Fellowship

The Finger Fellowships

Leading sustainable change in America's health.

Since 2005, the Elaine and Marvy Finger Fund for Sustainable Health has supported the identification, creation, and implementation of strategies that lead to sustainable health for all Americans.

The Finger Fund sponsors a competitive fellowship for students interested in working independently, in collaboration with established programs, to discover new ways to address the challenge of chronic illness, focusing on underserved populations.
