New Research Funding Opportunities through TVN

Categories: Research.

Up to eight (8) fellowships will be funded with a stipend of $50,000 per year for two years.

The TVN Fellowship is unique in going beyond traditional academic and clinical training opportunities within disciplines, offering enriched experiential learning based on the concept of interdisciplinary collaboration. In addition to fellows’ own personal knowledge creation or translation projects, the Fellowship Program integrates interdisciplinary and patient-focused research and experiential projects and learning in eight modules.
A Pre-Application Indication of Intent is required for this competition. You must register your intent online by 9 am EST on Monday, December 2, 2013. Applications will not be considered unless an indication of intent to apply has been received electronically using the online form.
Applications are due Monday, December 16, 2013 by 9:00 am EST.  Successful applicants will be informed in March, and must be available to attend the TVN Annual Scientific Conference September 22-23, 2014.

To facilitate a well-rounded interdisciplinary experience for all fellows, TVN is seeking applicants from a wide variety of disciplines such as Medicine, Nursing, Social Work, Counselling, Theology, Gerontology or Aging, Ethics, Law, Public or Health Policy or Administration, Health Economics, Pharmacology, Nutrition and Rehabilitation. In addition to working with supervisors within their disciplines, they will interact closely with interdisciplinary mentors and most importantly, with patients, families and their support systems.
Fellows may be graduate/doctoral/post-doctoral students or graduates, residents or fellows, or working professionals, and will have relevant employment or life experience and the academic/other skills necessary to complete the rigorous fellowship requirements. Preference will be given to applicants that have demonstrated current or prior personal or professional interest in aging and/or the seriously ill elderly through pursuing aging-related courses or specializations, or relevant work, community service or leadership experience.
