*Applications are now closed for Spring 2019.

To honour Lyle Hallman's vision of a healthy and educated community, the Hallman Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Health Promotion supports undergraduate students who wish to participate in research projects under the supervision of Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) researchers focusing on health promotion and education. 


The Research Fellowship was created to expose undergraduate students to research experiences in the area of health promotion and education and to encourage students to consider graduate studies.

The Research Fellowship also provides opportunities for students to become familiar with the health promotion-related research occurring in AHS academic departments, research centres, and institutes.

This initiative is consistent with AHS’s and the University of Waterloo’s Sixth Decade Plans to provide increased research opportunities for undergraduate students.


AHS faculty members, including research professors in the research centres and institutes, who are interested in supervising a student with a Fellowship are eligible to submit an application.

The financial compensation of the Research Fellowship will vary depending on whether the award supports an undergraduate student working on a project part-time during an academic term or full-time as a co-op work term or non-academic term work experience.

Senior students may choose to base their honours research projects on the work completed during the Research Fellowship.

Faculty members will receive an email to notify them that applications are being accepted.


The number of research fellowships available is dependent on the income generated by the Hallman Endowment Fund and the suitability of the proposals submitted. Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee and will consider the suitability of the application according to the purpose of the fellowship.

Within two weeks of completing the Fellowship, the student must submit a brief 1-2 page final report, which can then be shared with the trustees of the Hallman Foundation.
