The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis 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 five 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, submit your application by March 15.
