Graduate Fellowships The application period has now passed.

NoroCORE™ offers graduate fellowships annually to graduate students currently working with a NoroCORE™ investigator, who have completed at least one year of graduate studies. This 1-year fellowship provides a generous stipend for the student, as well as funding towards the cost of education. Scholars from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds (African American or Black; American Indian or Alaska Native; Hispanic and/or Latino) are encouraged to apply. Please note we cannot award more than one fellowship per given institution, though multiple applicants may submit. Current NoroCORE™ fellows are not eligible to compete for this award.

The NoroCORE™ team is developing an online graduate curriculum in Food Virology. The curriculum will consist of modules on Molecular Virology, Detection, Epidemiology & Risk Analysis, and Prevention & Control. NoroCORE™ is working closely with its collaborative partners from New Mexico State University’s Media Productions team to develop video and other visual educational materials to support the text-based portion of the curriculum. These materials will also be adapted for other audiences. The curriculum will be available online at no cost. The visual educational materials are also available publicly on our YouTube channel.
