Other Graduate Funding Opportunities
DNP – Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP)
For DNP students who intend to work full time in nursing education upon graduation, Clarke participates in the Nurse Faculty Loan Payment program. The purpose of the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty by providing loans to part-time and full-time students enrolled in an advanced nurse education program. Students awarded NFLP funding may cancel 85 percent of their loan in return for serving four years full-time as faculty in any accredited school of nursing in the U.S. Learn more.
MSW – Graduate Assistantship/Stipend Field Practicum
Students with an interest in mental health counseling and who are entering their specialized practice-year field practicum are eligible to apply for a field placement in the Clarke Counseling Center. During the two-semester field practicum, students complete a total of 500 hours, which is roughly 17 hours/week. Students have an individual caseload of 4-8 clients.
A student who is offered a placement in the Clarke Counseling Center may receive a clinical graduate assistantship and receive $2,500 for one or both semester he/she serves as a field student in the Counseling Center. This is a highly competitive placement and requires a two-step interview process. Deposited and current MSW students entering their final year of the program are welcome to interview for this field placement in early spring for a field placement that will begin in the fall of the next academic year.
For more information about the Clarke Counseling Center field placement and the graduate assistantship, please contact the Social Work Department.
DPT – Athletic Training Positions
There are often several part-time athletic training positions open at Clarke at any given time. DPT students who already have an Athletic Training license are eligible to apply for part-time Athletic Training positions at Clarke. However, employment as an AT must not conflict with DPT courses/coursework as approved absences do not include paid employment. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
