About Our Nursing Philosophy Fellowship

The Center for Nursing Philosophy Fellowship program supports promising nursing PhD students or interested nursing faculty to pursue targeted scholarship in nursing philosophy. The PhD Nursing Fellowship comes with a small stipend to be used at the fellow’s discretion for support during the fellowship period. The fellowship is a 1-quarter (10 week) commitment for intensive mentored scholarship in the Center for Nursing Philosophy (either virtually or in person depending on context), followed by 2 additional 10-week quarters of virtual mentorship to support scholarship completion. The expectation is that the end of the Fellowship corresponds with submission of the completed scholarship as a manuscript for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

The application period opens June 1 of each year.
