Graduate Research Fellowship in Cancer Disparities open to UOG student applicants
The University of Guam Cancer Center announces the availability of student trainee positions in cancer disparities research. Current students at the University of Guam are invited to apply for a graduate assistantship and research assistant positions made available by the Pacific Island Partnership for Cancer Health Equity (PIPCHE). This is a cancer research, training, and outreach program in partnership with the University of Hawaii, funded by the National Cancer Institute’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities.
Funding is up to $3,000 per semester, per student, for a tuition waiver. 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. Students are encouraged to apply for both. Funding is subject to annual budgetary limitations.
Initial appointment is for one semester but extensions are possible for up to two years in total with satisfactory performance. Previously awarded student trainees will be considered pending the availability of funds.
All 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).
