HHMI International Student Research Fellowships; internal LOI due Oct. 18

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) seeks applications from outstanding international pre-doctoral students studying in the U.S. who are ineligible for fellowships or training grants through U.S. federal agencies. HHMI will fund up to 50 three-year fellowships for international graduate students worth over $30,000 per year. The fellowships are intended to support years three, four, and five of a Ph.D. program. HHMI seeks fellows in the following biomedical-related fields: biology, chemistry, physics, math, computer science, engineering, plant biology, and interdisciplinary research.

To be eligible for the HHMI International Student Research Fellowship, applicants should currently be in the second (or third) year of graduate study, have entered a laboratory in which they will conduct their dissertation research, and not be citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. Please note: This opportunity requires internal coordination because OHSU may nominate only three students.
