The Schroeder Center for Health Policy at William & Mary is pleased to announce a summer research fellowship program in conjunction with the Brock Institute for Community and Global Health at the Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS). The Schroeder Center - Brock Institute (SC-BI) Summer Fellowship Program is open to all continuing William & Mary undergraduate students with at least a 3.0 GPA. SC-BI Fellows will receive a $3,000 stipend and free university housing for work to be completed over the course of seven full-time weeks between June 13 and July 29, 2016.

Applicants for SC-BI fellowships will propose their own research question related to health policy or health services research. During the fellowship period, students will conduct the proposed research using appropriate methods. Students will work with a William & Mary faculty mentor and have access to data and statistical programs in the Schroeder Center. Fellows will have opportunities for interaction with EVMS faculty and other student fellows. Work will conclude with the completion of a research paper and a presentation of the research findings.

Preference will be given to applicants whose research focuses on health policy issues pertaining to the Commonwealth of Virginia or the Hampton Roads community and to applicants who plan to use quantitative analysis, possibly including patient-level data from the Virginia Health Information.

For application guidelines, please visit the Schroeder Center?s website or contact Kelly Metcalf-Meese at klmetcalfmeese@wm.edu. The application deadline is noon (12:00 p.m.) on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.
