HHMI research fellowship for international pre-docs, internal deadline Oct. 17

The Howard Hughes Medical Inhhmi logostitute (HHMI) has invited OHSU to nominate one predoctoral student to the 2016 International Student Research Fellowships program. HHMI is a science philanthropy whose mission is to advance biomedical research and science education for the benefit of humanity. Their fellowship is designed to support outstanding international predoctoral students studying in the U.S. 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. The chosen fellows will each be awarded $30,000 per year plus allowances.

Eligible biomedical-related fields include biology, chemistry, physics, math, computer science, engineering, and plant biology as well as interdisciplinary research. Applicants must:

  • have demonstrated exceptional talent and innovation in research,
    and be in their second (or third) year of graduate study;
  • have entered a laboratory in which they will conduct their dissertation research; and
  • are not U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S.

Note that this opportunity requires internal coordination as OHSU can submit only one application; therefore, limited submission guidelines apply. If you are interested in applying, submit an application via the Competitive Application Portal (CAP) by October 16, 2015. The external deadline for the final application to the Howard Hughes Medical Institute is November 17, 2015.
