My best,

Description of Healy Fellowship
Named in honor of Georgetown’s 28th President, Patrick Healy, the first African-American to earn a doctorate degree, and the first African-American President of Georgetown University (1874–1882), the Healy Fellowship is intended to further Georgetown’s commitment to creating a diverse community composed of the most qualified students.  The Program is designed to help recruit and retain graduate students who are talented individuals of the highest caliber and who might otherwise find it difficult or impossible to successfully pursue a doctoral degree.
The Graduate School is committed to training diverse future faculty, researchers, and leaders who will enrich critical thinking, knowledge generation, and knowledge advancement across all disciplines. Diversity is a crucial element in preparing students for the service of others.  Healy Fellowships will be awarded to students whose background or experience, when evaluated holistically, suggests they are uniquely able to contribute to the diversity of the Georgetown community and to the academic profession as a whole.
Each Healy Fellow will receive stipend support, faculty mentorship, and engagement in community oriented and networking events while pursuing a doctoral degree at Georgetown. Stipend support in the amount of $34,000 will be provided to the Healy Fellows for up to twelve months per year for up to five years. 

 Students nominated must be US citizens or permanent residents entering their first year of a doctoral degree-granting program.  Factors that may be considered in awarding the Healy Fellowships are:  student's demonstrated ability and commitment to develop and support diversity and cultural understanding, a student’s cultural and/or family background (i.e., first-generation or first-in-family to attend college, race or ethnicity, DACA status, parents’ level of education and income, region of residence, high school attended), a student's personal experiences and challenges, and a student's socioeconomic background.  We encourage nominations of individuals with all background and interests who have a history of overcoming a significant disadvantage
