Health Professions & Human Services

The Marques Colston Fellowship in Health

The Marques Colston Fellowship in the School of Health Professions and Human Services serves as a stepping-stone for students entering the field of health to build knowledge and skills to launch a well-rounded successful career.

Five to seven students majoring in HPHS undergraduate programs will be selected annually through a competitive process based on their leadership experience and entrepreneurial interest.

Colston Fellows

The fellows will participate in a yearlong program that will include multiple professional development seminars along with related workshops, and networking opportunities. Each fellow will also be matched with a professional mentor from their chosen field to provide a valuable advantage in both career and personal decisions.

Through the fellowship, students will receive additional experience and education outside of the classroom, placing themselves ahead of others when entering the workforce.

Eligible Majors: Community Health, Exercise Physiology, Health Science, Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences

Student applicants must have junior (60+ earned credits) or senior (90+ earned credits) when beginning the fellowship. All cohorts span a full academic year (fall and spring semesters).
