CTSI announces opportunities for graduate research fellowships

Penn State’s NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) announced its 2014-15 TL1 research fellowship opportunities for graduate students in areas relating to clinical and translational sciences.

The TL1 program is designed to extend students’ knowledge and skills beyond their primary area of study, fostering a greater understanding and practice of patient-oriented, epidemiological, behavioral, outcomes and health services research that transitions scientific findings from laboratories to clinical settings to best practices in the community.

Successful applicants will be expected to enroll in Penn State’s dual-title doctoral degree program in Clinical and Translational Sciences. Additional coursework is expected. The program is best suited for pre-doctoral students who have not completed their candidacy exam.

All TL1 scholars receive a monthly stipend and tuition support from Aug. 1, 2014 through July 30, 2015. Applications should be submitted electronically through the CTSI website and are due by Feb. 3, 2014.
