Calling All Bioengineers or Biomedical Engineers

By Courtney Gosnell - GradDiv Funding Peer

Are you a bioengineer or biomedical engineer interested in doing research abroad (as a graduate student or postdoc)? Check out this awesome opportunity called the Whitaker Fellows and Scholars Program. Here are the details:

The Whitaker International Program is a competitive grant that sends emerging leaders in biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) overseas to increase international collaboration in the field. Whitaker International Program grants are awarded based on an activity/project proposal that is relevant to biomedical engineering. We hope to offer about 50 grants annually, but only the highest-quality applicants are awarded.  Awards have included research in heart blood flow, improved prosthetic leg design, and development of affordable oral cancer screening tools.

Types of Grants:

  • Fellows - Graduate-level applicants, from graduating seniors through current PhD students. Fellows receive a stipend for one year, and are eligible for tuition reimbursement.
  • Scholars - Post-doctoral applicants, who recently received their PhD. Scholar awards can be for as little as one academic semester or as long as two years of funding, depending on their needs.

Interested? Check out the website or apply here. Applications are due January 24th, 2011.

Have questions or want to talk with a past awardee? Check out the Whitaker Program On-line Forum.

Department Specific Funding Links

By Courtney Gosnell - GradDiv Funding Peer

Now that it's summertime you may not be thinking about funding or fellowships... and you may not even want to if you're on a summer vacation or sunning yourself at the beach. But.... come Fall quarter you may wish you had gotten an earlier start on researching fellowships. In honor of summertime, we at the GradPost have tried to give you a few shortcuts to make finding funding easy---one of which is this list of department-specific funding list links from various universities. Just look under your department or a related department and voila--an instant list of fellowship opportunities relevant to what you do! There are also some extensive lists for a broader range of departments at the end of the list. Hope you enjoy!
