PODS I & II Scholarships, part of the Foundation’s Doctoral Opportunities for Clinicians and Scholars (DOCS) Program, are to fund post-professional doctoral students, who, having completed one full year of coursework, wish to continue their studies or have entered the dissertation phase of their post-professional doctoral program.
The Foundation encourages applicants from general and specialty areas to apply for funding.
Scholarship categories within the PODS program have been established for the two distinct phases of education and training:
PODS I – Up to $7,500 per year in support of the coursework phase of post-professional doctoral studies prior to candidacy (as defined by the applicant’s institution).
PODS II – Up to $15,000 in support of the post-candidacy phase of post-professional doctoral studies (as defined by the applicant’s institution).
Successful PODS I and PODS II candidates may receive up to three PODS I and two PODS II awards totaling $52,500. A new application is required for each year.
