About the Hudson Fellows

The Hudson Fellows in Public Health program, now in its 5th year, awards fellowships to graduate students who are training at the highest levels of their disciplines at the Hudson College of Public Health. 

The Hudson Fellows in Public Health program was established in 2013 by Dr. Leslie Hudson and Mr. Clifford Hudson to strengthen a growing network of scholarship, education and practice devoted to the development of better public health practices and outcomes for the state, the nation and the world in which we live.

The intent of the fellowship is to support full time continuous Ph.D. study for 4 consecutive years.  To be eligible for a fellowship, candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a student pursing a Ph.D. program in the Hudson College of Public Health, or a student accepted into a Ph.D. program in the College;
  • Must be enrolled full-time in the Hudson College of Public Health at the time the fellowship payments are made;
  • Must be in good academic standing; and
  • Must not be the Donors or an immediate family of the he Donors.

After an extensive application and interview process, recipients are awarded an annual stipend of at least $25,000, plus the University paid fringe benefits, paid monthly in 12 equal payments throughout the fiscal year.
