Walter Rand Institute Graduate Scholarship
In an effort to effect more original research about Southern New Jersey while amplifying the education and professional experiences of Rutgers University Camden students, the Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs is creating an endowed graduate Scholarship. The Graduate Scholarship for Southern New Jersey Initiatives at the Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs will provide a contribution toward a graduate student’s tuition at Rutgers University—Camden, while supporting that student’s research of an issue impacting Southern New Jersey. A key aspect of WRI’s mission is to provide students at Rutgers University—Camden with experiences that complement their course work and furthers their employability after graduation. To that end students have been involved in meaningful ways in all of WRI’s projects since its inception in 2000. Students participate in projects under the supervision of WRI fulltime staff assisting with research and data collection, report writing, and neutral convening of community stakeholder groups.
Applications will be accepted online between December 1, 2016 and February 1, 2017.
