PhD Research Awards

Seth & Denise Rosen Graduate Student Research Award

The Seth & Denise Rosen Graduate Student Research Award is presented annually to one or more PhD students in the College of Nursing. This award was established in memory of Seth D. Rosen, who succumbed to cancer at the age of 33. This award honors his spirit of inquiry and dedication to the establishment of knowledge to improve the health of all.

The purpose of the Rosen Award is to encourage qualified PhD students in nursing to contribute to the advancement of nursing through research by providing assistance with the direct costs of their PhD degree research. Priority areas for funding are research proposals that relate to the improvement of nursing education or to reduction of health disparities. However, proposals in any areas of nursing research are eligible for consideration.

Budget requests should be between $500-1,000. Money from the Rosen Award may be combined with other sources of funding. Requests for applications are generally issued via the College of Nursing listserv email system in late fall with a due date in early spring.
