SPHHS International Travel/Research Award

Application Deadline:  1/6/2014

The School of Public Health and Health Sciences announces four new International Travel/Research Awards. The awards are designed to support travel and research costs for international public health and health science research by full time graduate students in the SPHHS. Each award is up to $2000. The research/travel project must be conducted within 12 months of notification of receipt of the award.

To apply for the award, applicants should submit a one page application consisting of the student’s name, name of faculty advisor, degree program and year in degree program. Please include a description of the proposed project and the principle research question(s) and how your research will be enhanced via this award with your faculty advisor’s signature at the bottom. Also include a letter from your Graduate Program Director indicating that the applicant is in good academic standing and is currently a full time student in the department. The application packet should be completed prior to 1/6/2014 and submitted to the Department Chairperson. Proposals will be reviewed by the Department chairperson with two proposals forwarded to the Dean for consideration of funding.

One requirement for obtaining these awards is that recipients will write a one page synopsis of their travel/research experience to be presented to the Dean after returning and no later than one month after returning from the travel experience. A statement on the application should indicate that the applicant agrees to this requirement.
