1) PHF Research Awards:  A reminder that PHF research awards (PHF-REF, PHF-Core, and PHF-MC) are due soon.  Budget (March 3, 2017) and proposal (March 10, 2017) deadlines correspond with parent REF deadlines. See following website for full details:
2) PHF Graduate Assistantships:  A reminder that we have modified the guidelines for the PHF Graduate Assistantships so they do not have to be in final semester (i.e.,no longer restricted to finishing assistantship model). This means you can consider applying in other situations such as bridge funding.  However, graduate students must still be research-only mode, and can only receive one PHF graduate assistantship during their PhD study– so apply strategically. While the deadline for summer has past, see following website for full details and be on the lookout for summer applications deadline for Fall 2017 (will be announced in TechToday):
