Applications will be due to the Graduate School at 9:00am on Monday, October 17th.
Last year, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute established a new fellowship opportunity for international Ph.D. students in the biomedical or related sciences, including physical and mathematical sciences. The fellowships are for 3 years with an annual stipend of $30,000, annual allowance of $10,000 toward tuition and fees, and an annual allowance of $3000 for other costs related to study.
HHMI is holding the competition again this fall and UW-Madison has been invited to nominate up to 10 students for these awards. In an effort to keep the number of applications manageable, the Graduate School is inviting all programs in the biological and physical sciences to nominate one student to the Graduate School’s competition. If your program wishes to nominate a student, please sent the name of a contact person to Mary-Butler Stone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
