If you’re an MPH student here at Penn and you have a research project you’d like funding to develop, be sure to check out the grants offered by the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly. MPH Student Ashley Kraybill was recently selected as a recipient of the GAPSA-Provost Fellowship for Interdisciplinary Innovation, which help fund her project “The Church in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala: Perceptions of Need, Support, and Social Capital.” The fellowship exists to “promote original, student-derived initiatives that integrate knowledge across diverse academic disciplines. The fellowship is also meant to support the project-leader/s develop, pursue and complete their proposed interdisciplinary initiatives.” GAPSA also offers funding for travel to professional conferences and pilot research — take a look at the full list of their opportunities.
A reception for Ashley and the other 2013 GAPSA-Provost grant recipients will be held on Wednesday, September 18 from 5 – 6:30pm in the Graduate Student Center. Friends and family are welcome.
