One of our aims is to train graduate students in health, inequalities, and population research at the highest level. Graduate students often work with faculty affiliates as graduate and teaching assistants or as co-authors on manuscripts. We encourage graduate students to submit their work to national conferences and apply for research funding and we provide mentoring to graduate affiliates in these areas.

Research and Funding Opportunities

Present at a CHIP meeting

Current graduate student affiliates can receive feedback from faculty and peers on a paper idea, grant application, manuscript or conference presentation by presenting at an upcoming CHIP meeting. Contact Dr. Walsemann for more information.

Submit to PAA!

The Population Association of America’s Annual Meeting will be in Washington D.C. in April 2020. Paper submissions are due September 29th.

SPARC Graduate Research Grant Program

SPARC provides funding to graduate students for meritorious scholarship. This is a great way to fund your research. Applications are usually due in the Fall.

Conference Funding

If you are presenting at a professional conference, be sure to apply for a travel grant to the Graduate School.

Graduate Fellowships

CHIP does not currently offer training fellowships directly. If you are a prospective student, you should contact the department you will be applying to for further information about sources of funding for graduate studies. However, our faculty affiliates are often recruiting graduate students interested in health, inequalities, and population research to study with them. Currently, Dr. Katrina Walsemann is recruiting a predoctoral fellow to study with her in HPEB (more here). We encourage prospective students to reach out to our faculty affiliates if they are interested in working with them.

Graduate Certificate

Under development

CHIP is currently developing a graduate certificate in health and social inequalities. Stay tuned.
