Special financial opportunities for students

Training Program in Neurological and Rehabilitation Sciences

The University of Kansas was awarded with the Training Program in Neurological and Rehabilitation Sciences. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, this T32 grant-supported program was created by a high-caliber team of researchers and graduate student mentors led by Randolph J. Nudo, PhD, and was specifically written with students in the rehabilitation science program in mind.

This program is aimed at recruiting outstanding students to study in the areas of neurological rehabilitation The goal of the program is to provide predoctoral interdisciplinary training in translational research in basic and clinical aspects of neuroscience with a focus on neurological conditions amenable to rehabilitative treatments. This program produces well-trained scientists with highly promising careers in neurorehabilitation research.

A stipend and training related expenses for up to three years are provided.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and meet the eligibility requirements for admission to the rehabilitation science doctorate program. For additional details please contact the program director, Irina V. Smirnova. See more information about KU's T32 program.

Norton-Ringle Fellowship

The Norton-Ringle Fellowship was created in fall 2013 from a gift to the University of Kansas by the former dean of the School of Health Professions, Dr. Stata Norton Ringle and her husband. The fellowship will be used as a recruiting tool and to provide a stipend for a top applicant to the rehabilitation science program.

A stipend will be provided for the first year of study. Subsequently, the student will be expected to obtain continued support by applying for his or her own funding or on his/her mentor’s grants. There are no citizenship restrictions for the fellowship.
