St. Catherine University's Henrietta Schmoll School of Health (HSSH) received an $18 million dollar Academic Excellence Grant from the GHR Foundation in 2016 to advance growth and innovation in healthcare education with emphasis on global health, primary care, and senior living.
Funding is available for faculty/staff to host graduate trainees for projects that align with the specific aims and conceptual framework of the GHR Academic Excellence Grant. All departments and employees are eligible to submit proposals. Student trainees must be enrolled graduate students during the term of the project/traineeship. *Students in accelerated programs (e.g. 3+3, 3+2, etc.) will not be eligible until they are officially classified as graduate students.
Deadlines for traineeships include the following:
Fall Semester - April 15th
J-Term Semester - August 15th
Spring Semester - October 15th
Summer Semester - January 15th
Note: When submitting this application, you are allowed to apply for a full academic year or just a single semester.
Graduate students will be compensated with a tuition stipend of $4,000 for each academic semester (16 weeks) working on the project for around 15 hours per week for the duration of the term. Tuition stipends will be prorated on the number of hours and start date of the project. The project and traineeship will adhere to the University Graduate Assistantship & Traineeship Policy
*Ideally, applicants will have a student identified for this project. However, student(s) do not need to be named at the time of application, but can be later named if funding is awarded.
*Trainees may not be employees of St. Catherine University.
*Priority may be given to those who have not received funding previously.
The GHR Grants Leadership Team will notify applicants of their award status and support post award management with awardees.
