The Hayley Petit Injury and Violence Prevention Fellowship awards young women enrolled in a college or university with a $1,000 stipend from the Petit Family Foundation to study injury and violence prevention with Connecticut Children’s experts.

After running successfully for five summers, the program expanded in the fall of 2019 to offer fellowships to college students during the fall and spring semesters. The program provides Fellows with an opportunity to shadow staff members in different clinical areas throughout Connecticut Children’s. The Fellows also develop research proposals that fit within their own unique interests. The Injury Prevention Center’s focus areas include intimate partner violence, teen driving safety, youth suicide prevention, and elderly fall prevention.
