Doctoral Research Stipend Program

The purpose of this program is to support health policy and services research by offering a stipend to doctoral students who play an active role in the research of CHAS fellows, CHAS affiliates, and other CHAS-funded faculty members.

ABOUT

Stipend recipients will receive a total of $3,000 of financial support which will be distributed in three $1,000 increments, one increment per quarter in most cases.

NOTE: CHAS Doctoral research stipends are intended to support original health policy and services research that is supervised by a CHAS faculty member or CHAS-funded faculty member; stipends are not intended to support dissertation research.
