The Dickinson Fellowship Program provides advanced, specialized training for students pursuing vocations in the area of mental health. Fellowships are awarded to undergraduate and graduate students in psychology; marriage and family therapy; and nursing. Upon receipt of the award, fellows participate in a full academic year's sequence of readings, seminars, conferences, field work and other training experiences, as directed by faculty mentors from both the School of Health Sciences and the School of Psychology, Family and Community.
