Joint PhD Program Funding

September Deadlines

  1. The Henry J. Meyer Scholarship

    Department deadline: September 19, 2022 Submit electronically to Todd Huynh thuynh@umich.edu

    The Henry J. Meyer scholarship award was established by alumni and friends to honor the original and long-time director of the Doctoral Program, Henry J. Meyer, under whose leadership the program was the first doctoral program in social work to fully integrate the intensive study of social work and a social science discipline. The major purposes of this award are (a) to help support and honor students in the Doctoral Program in Social Work and Social Science whose written work exemplifies the goals of the Program in relation to the integration of social work and social science, and (b) to encourage students to prepare such work for possible publication or conference presentation.

    Normally this award will be made annually. Papers submitted by students will be judged by the Supervising Committee on the extent to which they make an original contribution to the empirical or theoretical literature in a manner that integrates social work and social science.
