As an interdisciplinary center, Center for Health Administration Studies (CHAS) is all about people. From helping disadvantaged populations through research, to providing resources to students and faculty to facilitate their educational and research needs, to maintaining communications with our Committee Members and Fellows, our mission is to continue perpetuating the interconnectedness that arose with the early history of CHAS and continues today as we advance our mission.

CHAS offers one $18,000 award on an annual basis. The purpose of the stipend is to support students whose dissertation topic falls within the Center’s mission in the final stages of the dissertation research and writing, from proposal to dissertation defense.


  1. Students must have proposed by the end of the previous Quarter and defend the dissertation no later than at the end of the 18 months of support.
  2. Must be actively enrolled, and in good academic standing with University.
  3. Dissertation topic must fall within the Center’s mission.
  4. Students are expected to be in residence for the entire period of their award.
