Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity at Portland State University!


The School of Social Work at Portland State University has announced The Campbell Doctoral Fellowship in Mentoring Research

The Campbell Fellowship will be awarded to a student entering the Ph.D. program of the PSU School of Social Work who has a background in child and youth development and who plans to pursue research on mentoring interventions for youth experiencing poverty and adversity. During the course of doctoral studies, the Campbell Fellow will engage in applied research focusing on existing mentoring programs in the community, particularly those with innovative program models, such as Friends of the Children. The Campbell Fellow will have opportunities to work on major externally funded research projects conducted by faculty affiliated with the PSU Center for Interdisciplinary Mentoring Research.


The student selected for the Campbell Fellowship will be awarded $5,000/per academic year for the first two years of the doctoral program. The award will be over and above the support typically offered to incoming doctoral students (i.e., research assistant stipend and tuition remission).


Candidates may indicate their interest in the Campbell Fellowship when they apply for admission to the Ph.D. program of the PSU School of Social Work. The application deadline for admissions is January 15, 2017. The recipient will be notified of the award at the time that an offer of admission is made. Receipt of the fellowship is contingent upon enrollment in the Ph.D. program.
