Program Overview

The Andrew Vincent White and Florence Wales White Scholarship will be awarded to one or more regularly enrolled full-time UC graduate students working in appropriate fields. The scholarship, of up to $20,000, may be used for a mix of fees, living expenses, and research expenses for one academic year. The student will be based at his or her home campus; the scholarship is not a residency at the UCHRI.

To be eligible for the Andrew Vincent White and Florence Wales White Scholarship, candidates must be: current full-time UC graduate students whose research involves the humanities and medicine or theoretical social sciences and medicine; advanced to candidacy by June 2005; and enrolled at their home campus during the scholarship period. Preference is given to students who are more advanced in their dissertation research and writing.


A complete application includes information such as the applicant's name, as well as the following uploaded documents: dissertation abstract, biographical abstract, scholarship proposal, and writing sample. Applicants must also provide the names of two referees, and the UCHRI in turn will ask them to provide letters on the applicant's behalf.

Applicants are strongly advised to read the complete Guidelines before filling out their application. For additional information or questions about any of the program guidelines, contact the UCHRI by e-mail at
