We are now accepting applications for a Research Assistance (RA) grant to help develop a pilot training on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) for judges/court personnel in the fall 2017 term. The official announcement and statement of requirements follows below. The deadline for applications is 3:00pm on Thursday, June 29. 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. We anticipate this grant will be renewable for the spring term. (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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 ACEs-Judicial Training RA Grant. Please address any questions about this opportunity to Institute for Health Law & Policy Director, Professor Amy Campbell.
The ACEs and Judicial Training Grant for Research Assistance was created through an award from The ACE Awareness Foundation to the Institute for Health Law & Policy at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. We anticipate one (1) fall semester RA position. The grant will be awarded to a student in the second or third year of law school who is in good academic standing and has exemplified academic merit. Preference will be given to a student in the Certificate in Health Law Program, in the JD/MPH program, who has taken Health Law or Mental Health Law (or will be taking Health Law or Mental Health Law in the fall 2017 semester), or who has otherwise demonstrated a commitment to health law.
