Mei Rosemary Fu, a professor and senior associate dean for research, founded the fellowship program to deepen undergraduate student exposure to nursing research. Students focus on reading and analyzing research data, conducting literature reviews, helping with data collection, and honing their basic professionalism skills. The fellowship gives students an opportunity to learn from accomplished scientists and expand their professional networks, opening up new potential avenues in their careers.

Donations are applied to...

Students in the first year received stipends of $600 each for the six-week project and free summer tuition. This financial support of our students—many of whom receive financial aid and work part and full-time jobs to pay for their education—is needed to allow them to take time in the summer to devote to research. The Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden is counting on your support to both grow the number of students who can participate and also increase the amount they receive as a stipend.

How you can Help

Introduced in the summer of 2022, the Undergraduate Nursing Research Fellowship enabled seven Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden students to focus on research projects guided by faculty. Your financial support is needed to grow this essential program in 2023. Your support will benefit our students and bolster research projects that have positive impact on the Camden community and beyond.

Why are donations necessary?

Building on the success of the first cohort in summer 2022, Dean Fu is hoping to grow the program so it can be offered for up to 40 students per year. The program will build research capacity at the school and prepare a new generation of nurses. “Training students from the undergraduate level and providing opportunities for them to observe successful researchers is very important for their career development,” Fu says.
