Fellowship Opportunities

office for nursing research


The Undergraduate Research Fellows Program enables students to gain firsthand experience in scholarly work by participating with a faculty member on a research project. Faculty members select students, and students receive a monetary award based upon the scope and duration of the project. Academic credit is not granted through the program. Fellowships may also be available for summer terms. Contact the associate dean’s office for more information or inquire with faculty directly to express your interest in being involved in their research.

Diversity Fellowship

To further the Connell School's commitment to diversity, a diversity fellowship has been created for a qualified applicant who is from an underrepresented racial, ethnic, or gender group in nursing. All qualified applicants will be considered for this fellowship. The Ph.D. committee will choose and contact the awardee.

Funding Increase

Funding has now been increased for newly admitted Ph.D. fellows. Changes include an additional year of funding as well as a 10% stipend increase. This change creates a package spanning three years and provides the fellow with tuition credits, health insurance, and a competitive stipend.
