Doctoral Funding Opportunities

The NYU-CTSI is accepting applications from advanced doctoral students engaged in translational health research. Along with Jan Blustein, Perry Halkitis co-directs this program, which in addition to providing funding, is an excellent opportunity to engage with other doctoral students across disciplines who are engaging in health research. In the previous round, a Steinhardt PhD student received one of the six awarded fellowships. Six more fellowships will be awarded in this round.

If you would like to pursue this fellowship opportunity or have any questions, please contact Perry Halkitis  ( or Marty McDonough ( in the Steinhardt Office of Research. Further information about the program is shown below. The deadline is MAY 9, 2011.


Elderhostel invites applications from doctoral candidates researching lifelong or later-life learning for the Elderhostel K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Research Grant. This $5,000 grant is awarded annually to a student in various disciplines including, but not limited to, psychology, education, gerontology, cognitive studies, neuroscience, leisure studies, aging and social work. Because the selection committee requires an abstract and description of your current research, you must already be engaged in your dissertation research.

Please note that the application deadline has been extended one month later to Monday, May 2, 2011 due to an erroneous email sent with this later deadline date. The website will be updated with this date soon. For further information, including requirements and the online application, please visit:

Should you have any questions about the Elderhostel K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Grant, please email or call (617) 457-5529.   If you plan to pursue the grant described below, please work with the Steinhardt Office of Research and Marty McDonough ( in particular.
