HHMI's new fellowship program supports outstanding international predoctoral students studying in the United States who are ineligible for fellowships or training grants through U.S. federal agencies.
HHMI will award three-year fellowships to international students to support years three, four, and five of a Ph.D. program. Eligible biomedical-related fields include biology, chemistry, physics, math, computer science, engineering, and plant biology--as well as interdisciplinary research.
HHMI expects to fund up to 40 fellowships for the 2011-2012 academic year. Each fellow will receive an annual stipend of $30,000, plus an educational allowance.
Nomination Process and Eligibility: HHMI has designated selected U.S. institutions to nominate students to participate in the fellowship competition. Only these institutions are eligible to nominate students for this competition. Only students nominated by their host institutions can apply for the fellowship.
