Portage Health Foundation (PHF) Graduate Assistantships Application Procedures

The Graduate School is grateful to the support offered by the Portage Health Foundation for our graduate students. Although this program has ended, collaboration with the foundation continues at Michigan Tech. Graduate Assistantships provided one semester of support to PhD candidates. These assistantships were available through the generosity of the Portage Health Foundation. They were intended to recognize outstanding PhD talent in health-oriented research areas. Applicants should have been a catalyst for promoting and improving the overall health of Houghton, Keweenaw, Baraga, and Ontonagon communities through one of the following:

  • health research and technology development
  • health education or preventive and wellness initiatives
  • rural healthcare access, informatics, and assessment of care
