The Howard Hughes Medical Institute grants fellowships for international students pursuing doctoral degrees in the sciences in the United States. The fellowship includes a $30,000 stipend, fees, and a $3,000 research allowance annually for up to three years, but not beyond the fifth year of study.
The fellowship supports outstanding international pre-doctoral students, who are currently in their second or third year of a Ph.D. program. Applicants must have a defined dissertation focus and those advanced to candidacy will be given priority.
Individuals with interdisciplinary research projects in biomedical fields or related sciences are strongly encouraged to apply. Examples of eligible fields include physical and biological sciences, engineering, and natural resources. U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, and permanent residents are NOT eligible.
Applicants for the HHMI can apply through Tango. The campus deadline is Monday, October 12, 2015.
