CLF-Lerner Fellowships


Established in 2003, the goal of the Center for a Livable Future-Lerner Fellowship Program is to support doctoral students at the Johns Hopkins University who are committed to the discovery and/or application of knowledge about public health challenges associated with the current food system, and/or the creation of a healthy, just, equitable, and sustainable food systems.

The CLF-Lerner Fellowship program is named to honor Sid and Helaine Lerner, whose generous support made it possible to establish the program. Each CLF-Lerner Fellowship award provides up to four years of support to be used for tuition, stipend, and/or research expenses related to individual needs. The fellowship program also provides enrichment opportunities such as a journal club, trainings, meetings with leaders in the field, and a network of current and former fellows. Prospective Johns Hopkins PhD students from all divisions within the university are eligible to apply and receive support.

The selection process for AY23-24 has concluded. In the fall, we will share an announcement about the new CLF-Lerner Fellows.
