PHLR's Strategic and Targeted Research Program funds research to fill critical gaps in the public health law evidence base. As part of this effort, PHLR is offering dissertation grants to train doctoral students in public health law research methods, including the development of legal datasets. PHLR invites current PhD students in accredited doctoral degree programs to apply.
Dissertation Grants will be awarded for up to $20,000 each for 12 months maximum. These grants include:
Beyond the monetary support provided by the awards, the program also offers awardees the opportunity to share research progress and network at the PHLR 2014 Annual Meeting. Travel support for the PHLR Annual Meeting is covered by the National Program Office and should not be included in the application budget.
Up to $100,000 will be available under this program.
