Sara Rubin - Winner of the UCHRI White Scholarship

Congratulations to Sara Rubin for being the 2017/18 winner of the Andrew Vincent White and Florence Wales White Scholarship!

The Andrew Vincent White and Florence Wales White Scholarship is an award given by the University of California Humanities Research Institute. The scholarship is intended to support dissertation completion, and is typically granted to two graduate students per year whose scholarship lies at the intersection of medicine and the humanities. The program supports scholars whose research and outcomes engage with publics beyond the academy. Proposals are reviewed by an advisory committee of faculty representing various campuses, with each member of the committee reviewing all incoming applications.

Eligibility: The scholarship is awarded to one or more regularly enrolled full-time UC graduate students working in appropriate fields. Applicants must be: working on dissertations in the humanities and medicine or theoretical social sciences and medicine; advanced to doctoral candidacy by June 30 of the year in which they apply; and enrolled at their home campus during the scholarship period. Preference is given to students who are more advanced in their PhD dissertation research and writing. The scholarship may be used for tuition, living expenses, and research expenses for one academic year. The student will be based at his or her own campus; the scholarship is not a residency at the UCHRI.
