HHMI Awards Predoctoral, Medical Student Fellowships

Summary

Ninety-two graduate students and 69 medical students have won new fellowships.
Ninety-two graduate students and 69 medical students have won new fellowships from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The predoctoral fellowships are five-year awards for students working for doctoral degrees in the biological sciences. Medical student fellowships enable medical students to devote a year during their medical schooling to biomedical research and provide support for some to resume their medical education. Through these two programs, HHMI now supports nearly 500 students at more than 70 universities and research centers. Since the fellowship programs began, the Institute has awarded nearly $200 million to 2,000 graduate and medical students. This year's predoctoral fellows will study at 27 institutions in the United States. Fellows include 48 men and 44 women. Eight are minorities underrepresented in the sciences. Medical student fellows, including 40 men, 16 women and four from minorities underrepresented in the sciences, will conduct biomedical research at 19 U.S. institutions.
