Fellowship programs have proven to be a successful method of attracting and retaining talented and invested individuals to a variety of public service positions. Through this grant to Baltimore Corps, the de Beaumont Foundation funded three fellows to spend a year at the Baltimore City Health Department to work in high-impact positions and to be deployed across diverse efforts to implement and manage public health efforts in the city. The fellows were also tasked with studying the impact the fellowships made in the health department and sharing the program as a model with other Big Cities Health Coalition members.
