Application Procedure

 

The NRSA pre- and post-doctoral fellowship is no longer accepting applications for 2018-19.  Please check back in the Fall of 2018 for updates on applying for the 2019-20 year.

 

All application materials are due February 15th

 

Predoctoral applicants are asked to submit the following materials to lmccall@email.unc.edu:

  • Predoctoral Fellowship Application Form
  • Recent curriculum vitae
  • Graduate transcript(s) – prefer electronic but will accept paper, UNC’s can be unofficial
  • A letter from their mentor
  • Two other letters of recommendation from persons familiar with their abilities in relation to health services research or their field of specialization

Acceptance to the predoctoral fellowship program is contingent upon being a full-time student in good standing in one of the listed UNC-CH academic departments.

 

Postdoctoral applicants are asked to:

  • Submit an application through the UNC HR application portal.  A link to the portal will be available in Fall 2018.
  • Email Lindsay McCall two letters of recommendation from persons familiar with their abilities in relation to health services research or their field of specialization.  These letters can be sent directly from the recommenders or from the applicant.

Persons wishing to pursue a formal degree program at UNC-CH should contact the relevant department for application materials and file a separate application in that regard. Particular questions about these matters should be addressed to the student services coordinator of the relevant department. Acceptance to the postdoctoral fellowship program does not guarantee acceptance to a degree program of UNC-CH, and vice versa.

 

**Applicants for fellowship support must be either US citizens or recognized by the US Department of State as “permanent residents” of the United States.**
