The Identity, Culture and Health in the United States Initiative
is now accepting applications for
FELLOWSHIPS FOR SUMMER RESEARCH, 2017
THE FELLOWSHIPS: The GHP Initiative on Identity, Culture and Health in the U.S. will offer fellowships to six outstanding undergraduate students whose research focuses on a public health issue facing vulnerable populations in the United States. The fellowships will support independent summer research based anywhere in the U.S., and it will give preference to students seeking to do research in New Jersey. Each student is required to develop an original research project related to domestic health policy, the social determinants of health, and/or the health of marginalized (by race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender, geography, etc) individuals or groups in the U.S.
THE PROGRAM: The GHP Identity, Culture and Health Initiative was launched in Spring 2016 to expand research, coursework and programming on domestic health issues. Through an exciting suite of new courses and field research fellowships, students will explore multidimensional causes of health inequalities and engage the struggles of our most vulnerable citizens for civil and socioeconomic rights. The initiative will also create experiential learning opportunities to increase student knowledge of health inequalities here in New Jersey.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Applications for the 2016-2017 academic year are due April 21st by 5pm. Students should apply through Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE). Recipients will be notified of their selection in early May.
