  • NINR Expands 2012 Graduate Partnerships Program
    Doctoral students interested in the 2012 NINR Graduate Partnerships Program (GPP) have a new option: they may register for an Individual Partnership instead of applying for an Institutional Partnership. NINR has expanded the 2012 GPP to allow doctoral students at any school of nursing, not only those supported by an NINR-funded Institutional Research Training (T32) grant, a chance to participate. The NINR GPP is a doctoral fellowship training program that combines the academic environment of a university and the breadth and depth of research at NIH. Financial support and other benefits are provided for up to 5 years. Learn more.
