Graduate Student & Postdoctoral Scholar Research Funding

As a graduate student or postdoctoral scholar, did you ever need a small amount of money so that you could test your own hypothesis, generate preliminary data for your own grant application, publish your study, or present at a research conference?

Like most trainees, the funding sources that were difficult for you to find are probably non-existent today. Our students and scholars need support to conduct, publish, and/or present their own lab studies.

In response to student self-directed re-search needs, the College of Graduate Health Sciences has established eight scholarships to support UTHSC trainees studying in the following areas:

  • Speech and Hearing Science
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Biomedical Sciences
  • Dental Sciences
  • Epidemiology
  • Health Outcomes and Policy
  • Nursing Science
  • Pharmaceutical Sciences/Pharmacology

Our students will compete for small grants less than $10,000 to use toward lab supplies, publication, conference travel and professional presentations.
