Grad students: Earn up to $9,000 next semester as a cancer research assistant
Graduate students at the University of Guam are invited to apply for student trainee positions in cancer disparities research. The Pacific Island Partnership for Cancer Health Equity (PIPCHE) Graduate Research Fellowship in Cancer Disparities is is a cancer research, training, and outreach program in partnership with the University of Hawaii and funded by the National Cancer Institute’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities. The fellowship includes paid opportunities as a graduate assistant, a research assistant, or both.
Applications are due by June 15, 2022.
Initial appointment is for one semester, but extensions are possible for up to two years with satisfactory performance. Previously awarded student trainees will be considered pending the availability of funds.
Tuition waivers up to $3,000 per semester, per student, are possible. Up to an additional $6,000 per semester is available for students who wish to work as research assistants on a U54 PIPCHE research project. Students may apply for one or both forms of funding but are encouraged to apply for both.
Students who are accepted into the program are expected to attend weekly seminar meetings hosted by the University of Hawaii Cancer Center. Students who are awarded research assistantships will be required to work up to 20 hours per week on a U-54 research project (students are paid for the hours they work).
Submit by email your completed application; curriculum vitae; statement of research interests and career goals; proposed research plan, if applicable; and a brief description of mentor’s research to firstname.lastname@example.org.
