The Dean of the SPHHS will offer up to five Ph.D. non-working fellowships to nationally-competitive new graduate student applicants. The intent of this program is to facilitate the recruitment of top-quality doctoral students and not to support students currently in the SPHHS.
Term of appointment: Each fellowship is for one year but may be renewed for a second year.
Stipend: Each fellow will receive up to $10,000 per year from the Dean’s office. The recipient must maintain excellent academic standing, and apply for an externally-funded graduate student fellowship such as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship, the Ford Pre-doctoral Diversity Fellowship or other nationally-competitive fellowship appropriate to the student’s discipline.
All funds received from the Dean’s office must be matched by either Departmental funds or faculty grant funds (up to $10,000 per year) and cannot be from faculty start-up funds. Additional funding beyond the combined $20,000 amount is encouraged, from additional faculty grant funding during the academic year or a summer stipend.
