​Chair's Doctoral Fellowship

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) believes that student body diversity brings great strength and innovation to doctoral research and education. Diversity in BME is advanced by having a broad variety of cultural, socioeconomic, gender, racial, ethnic, geographical, philosophical/religious, and other distinctive backgrounds and perspectives (e.g., first generation college graduates, experience facing personal or financial hardship).

The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a Chair’s Doctoral Fellowship that supports an additional $5,000 annually above the standard stipend for up to 5 years, to admitted prospective doctoral students who would contribute to the diversity of BME doctoral education. Selection criteria include academic qualifications, experiences and attributes communicated through application materials and an admissions interview.
To be considered for the Fellowship, please complete this form by March 15:
