We are now accepting applications for multiple Research Assistance (RA) grants to help on policy related to childhood trauma and health in the fall 2017 term. The official announcement and statement of requirements follows below. The deadline for applications is 4:00pm on Thursday, May 25. To apply, please submit a resume with cover letter (addressed to Selection Committee, which shall be appointed by the Dean) describing your interest in and qualifications for a grant, and the reasons you believe the Committee should select you for a grant. It is anticipated we will have several student RA grants for the fall. (Note: Students should make sure, before applying, this research assistant position would not negatively affect any existing obligations (e.g. Humphreys Fellowship or any other service scholarship).) Submit applications electronically to Ms. Karol Landers at email@example.com. It will make this process easier if you submit the application as a single PDF document. The subject line of the email should clearly state your name and the connection to the Health Law/Policy RA Grant. Please address any questions about this opportunity to Institute for Health Law & Policy Director, Professor Amy Campbell.
The Health Law/Policy Grants for Research Assistance were created through an award from The Urban Child Institute to the Institute for Health Law & Policy at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. We anticipate several fall semester RA positions. Grants will be awarded to students in their second or third year of law school who are in good academic standing and have exemplified academic merit. Preference will be given to students in the Certificate in Health Law Program, in the JD/MPH program, who have taken Health Law (or will be taking Health Law in the fall 2017 semester), or who have otherwise demonstrated a commitment to the law school’s health law program. Students who are awarded a grant are expected to enroll in the Health Policy Practicum in the spring 2018 term for skills-development related to these RA opportunities.
