Higher Education Administration (HIED) PhD Program Assistantship Information

Categories are  Assistantship  tagged  Stipend /  Graduate Students /  International Students /  Research

Graduate assistantships for full-time Higher Education Administration(HIED) doctoral students are available through the HIED program and various BGSU administrative offices. Assistantships are available in both administration and research. The assistantship stipend and tuition scholarship represent the substantial commitment by the University to students' education.

These positions provide an opportunity to acquire valuable experience. The majority of graduate assistantships are half-time, nine month positions, requiring 20 hours of work per week. If students are offered and accept a graduate assistantship, the stipend will be $15,000 for the academic year, paid bi-weekly. Students will receive a tuition scholarship for the 64 credit hours of the program. If you are not an Ohio resident, the scholarship will cover the non-resident fee on the credits covered by the scholarship. After the first year, the scholarship will not cover the non-resident fee for domestic (US) students as Ohio residency can be established; international students will continue to have their non-resident fees covered.

Renewal of assistantship awards is possible. An approved Tentative Degree Plan (TDP) on file in the Graduate College is required for processing the second year contract. Funding as a graduate student is available for a maximum of three years at the doctoral degree level. Funding for a fourth year is not guaranteed but may be available, provided that you have successfully defended your preliminary exam and your dissertation proposal.

To retain an appointment, graduate assistants must make satisfactory progress toward a degree, and must perform duties satisfactorily according to the terms of the appointment.

The HIED program is fortunate to have an on-going relationship with a number of potential assistantship sites, typically at least as many as we have entering full-time students. Prospective students must interview with these supervisors and receive an offer to secure a graduate assistantship. The university will coordinate the interview process for invited prospective students who apply by December 1 by arranging an Interview Weekend (known as I-Days) early in the spring semester. Those applications reviewed after the Interview Weekend will receive help but will need to arrange interviews directly with the assistantship sites.

Department of Health and Human Services Grant

Categories are  Grants  tagged  Award /  Health Wellness /  Research

The purpose of this initiative is to support time-sensitive research on risk and resilience factors related to short- and long-term health outcomes following Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. This initiative will use a shortened submission timeline with expedited peer review, council concurrence, and award issuance. The entire cycle, from submission to award, is expected to be within 3-4 months.

The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to better understand the short-term health risks and health impacts of hurricanes in PR and USVI, including the onset of acute conditions, exacerbation of existing chronic conditions, and risk for future onset of chronic disease. Projects supported under this FOA may be used as the basis for future studies of longer-term health impacts. Projects are expected to examine interrelationships among psychosocial stressors experienced by PR or USVI residents; individual, family, organizational, and/or community-level responses (including healthcare system responses); and current physical health or mental health status and/or risk factors for future chronic disease. Projects supported under this FOA may be used as the basis for future studies of longer-term health impacts. Projects are expected to examine interrelationships among psychosocial stressors experienced by PR or USVI residents; individual, family, organizational, and/or community-level responses (including healthcare system responses); and current physical health or mental health status and/or risk factors for future chronic disease. Projects are expected to use an approach that encompasses multiple domains (e.g., biological, behavioral, sociocultural, environmental, physical environment, or health system) and multiple levels (e.g., individual, interpersonal, community, societal) to understand post-hurricane health risk and resilience.

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH): Recognizing that substantial research has been conducted on mental health outcomes following disasters, including the role that many psychosocial stressors play in acute and chronic disease morbidity and mortality, NIMH will accept for consideration applications that move beyond established literature on general risk factors, patterns of need, the costs and benefits of implementing evidence-based interventions and treatments to improve mental health outcomes, and examining new ways of reducing gaps in mental health needs. Applications proposing to relate known disaster related stressors to acute and chronic mental health outcomes will not be considered for funding by NIMH.

Policies and Guidelines for Including Biostatistics Support on Grants

Categories are  Grants  tagged  Biostatistics /  PHD Degree /  Award /  Research /  STEM /  Masters Degree

The guidelines lay out common scenarios and are meant to serve as a starting point for discussion for planning and budgeting purposes. In all cases, discussion with Biostatistics faculty early in the grant preparation process is necessary to ensure that the appropriate level of support is provided.

PhD faculty and master’s statisticians can participate in grant development in numerous ways including

  • assisting with the development of a research team;
  • assisting the investigators in defining and refining study aims and measures;
  • developing study designs;
  • writing statistical analysis plans;
  • computing the power or sample sizes necessary to achieve the study aims;
  • If Biostatistics effort in proposal development is not covered by funded projects, time spent on proposal development will be billed at the current hourly rate or MOU.

    Inclusion of Biostatistics Personnel in Project Budgets

    PhD faculty effort:Biostatistics faculty should be included as named co-investigators (typically as key personnel) on collaborative applications. While effort may vary from year to year, an average of 10% effort (1.2 calendar months per year) over the project period is suggested as a guideline for most clinical projects and more complex basic science projects (see effort allocation guidelines below). Faculty may not be included on budgets for less than 5% effort without the approval of the Chair of the Department of Biostatistics.

    Master’s statistician effort: Master’s statisticians and data management personnel provide assistance with data management, statistical programming, and preparation of reports and manuscripts. For most funded projects, master’s statistician should be coupled with PhD faculty effort.

    Effort Allocation Guidelines

    These guidelines provide suggested levels of support for projects of varying complexity and need of statistical expertise.

    Large or complex projects (e.g. multi-site clinical trials, cores for program projects or SPORES): Total biostatistics annual effort 50–100+% per year, such as 20% or more of PhD faculty time plus 30–100% master’s statistician FTE.

    Regular Projects (e.g., R01 involving clinical data, basic science project with complex analysis (eg. Omics data)): Total biostatistics annual effort 20–50%, such as 10–15% PhD faculty time plus 10–35% master’s statistician FTE.

    Simple Projects (e.g., project under 250K direct per year): Total biostatistics effort 5–20% per year, such as 5-10% PhD faculty time plus 5-10% master’s statistician FTE.

    Limited Scope projects: Total biostatistics effort <5% per year
