Graduate Partnership Award

Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in Delaware State University’s Graduate Partnership Award Program. This program, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health Bridge-to-the-Doctorate program, establishes a “bridge,”  helping students to obtain a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science by providing the financial support to pursue graduate level studies, providing faculty mentors to guide students academically and professionally, and surrounding students with a support network of staff assisting them in accomplishing their goals. The program seeks to encourage students’ interest in graduate study by removing the financial barriers associated with continued study and hesitancy surrounding admission pre-requisites.

The successful applicant will plan to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Science, as indicated on the list of sanctioned programs of study (see below).  Applicants to the program are evaluated on the basis of their record of achievement, as well as their research experiences, motivation, and connection to their field of study.

We look forward to receiving your application for graduate admission to the Graduate Partnership Award Program.
