The Hallman Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Health and Promotion supports undergraduate students who wish to participate in research projects under the supervision of Faculty of Health researchers focusing on health promotion and education.  This fellowship is in honour of Lyle Hallman's vision of a healthy and educated community.

Purpose

The Research Fellowship was created to equip undergraduate students with research experience in the area of health promotion and education as well as encourage students to consider and/or pursue graduate studies.  

In addition, the Research Fellowship provides students with the opportunity to become familiar with the health promotion-related research occurring within the Faculty of Health, research centres, and institutes.

Funding

Faculty of Health members, who are interested in supervising a student, are eligible to submit an application. Funding also pertains to research professors in the research centres and institutes.  Please note that the Research Fellowship only runs during the Spring term.  

Financial compensation of the Research Fellowship is based on the following circumstances: 

  • Undergraduate student is working on the project part-time during an academic term
  • Undergraduate student is working on the project full-time as a co-op work term 
  • Undergraduate student is working on a non-academic term for work experience

The amount allocated will vary based on the aforementioned points and other factors as well.
