The Graduate Fellow position for the 2021-22 academic year
has been filled.


Application documents available at the bottom of this page

As part of our involvement on the JBU campus, The Center for Healthy Relationships employs two graduate fellows who work in our offices in various capacities. They are an active part of our staff, and contribute to ongoing program development and research. These positions are intended not only to provide financial benefit through tuition and stipends, but also to provide educational and professional opportunities that spark growth in the lives of the fellows. CHR also collaborates and greatly benefits from the unique backgrounds and diversity that each fellow brings with them.

A graduate fellow has the opportunity to participate in a variety of CHR projects and activities such as research, teaching, workshops and curriculum development, as well as routine office tasks.  Fellows also have the opportunity to develop and challenge themselves to grow as a person of character and a future therapist.

Fellowship vacancies occur as current fellows complete their studies and move on to the next stage of their professional lives. When opportunities for application are available, application information will be posted here.
