Deadline for GSK Fellowship Applications
March 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm
It is with great pleasure to announce the availability of a UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy fellowship program aimed at supporting students who have advanced toward their dissertation research. The GlaxoSmithKline Fellowship Award is made available by the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy Foundation and will serve to enrich our doctoral graduate program by supporting excellence at the level of dissertation research in the Pharmaceutical Sciences.
The GlaxoSmithKline Fellowship will be strategically awarded to applicants who:
- Have made an outstanding contribution to the graduate program;
- Demonstrate evidence of outstanding research accomplishments;
- If the awardee is receiving, will receive, or does receive additional external support, total funding may not exceed the full stipend amount currently in effect for pharmaceutical sciences graduate students in the School of Pharmacy.
- Have the potential for a highly successfully career that will have a major impact on advances in health care
Any full-time 3rd, 4th, or 5th year graduate student, who is in good academic standing and is well into their dissertation research, will be eligible for the GlaxoSmithKline Fellowship.
The one year GlaxoSmithKline Fellowship Award provides $12,000 to support graduate training. Up to $1,000.00 of the award may go towards non-stipend expenditures (i.e. incidentals directly associated with dissertation research preparation such as computer software, books, and travel to scientific research meetings, etc.), while the remaining funds will go towards stipend support for the awardee. If the awardee receives additional external financial support, the student’s total funding may not exceed the current stipend amount in effect for all doctoral students in pharmaceutical sciences.
Each division can nominate up to 2 applicants for this honor through whatever process they choose. Students should inform their Divisional Director of Graduate Studies (DDGS) ASAP should they desire to be nominated and to be advised on what is needed for the divisional review. Faculty letters should only be written if you are a nominated student finalist.
Attached, please find the GSK Fellowship Application Guidelines. Applications and accompanying materials (please include your CV as well) from divisional nominees are due by Noon on March 17 and should be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
