Graduate Research Funding for Ph.D. Candidates
Graduate Research Funding for U.S. Health Care and Health Policy Projects
Graduate Research Funding is periodically available through the Center for Health and Wellbeing (CHW) for Princeton University Ph.D. candidates.
Applications are welcome from a variety of health-related disciplines and across a broad range of multi-disciplinary perspectives. These include anthropology, biology, bioethics, economics, engineering, history, philosophy, politics, psychology, public policy, sociology, humanities and other disciplines. To be eligible for funding the applicant's proposed work must be related to U.S. health care and/or health policy.
Grants vary in size; the maximum grant is $5000 per annum. These funds can be used to defray pre-dissertation or dissertation costs associated with some aspect of research or training relevant to the student's proposal. A preference is given for funding to cover or offset direct research expenses. Funding for salaries or stipends is not available. Travel to the student’s home city/country is not covered.
Successful applicants may be asked to present their findings at an informal lunch seminar sponsored by CHW.
