Apply Now: Whitaker Fellowship

November 13, 2011

The Whitaker Fellowship program sends young U.S. based biomedical engineers around the world to study, complete an internship or conduct research on biomedical engineering, thus building international bridges and providing unique experiences to future leaders in the field.

Applicants must be highly qualified and must have demonstrated significant interest in biomedical engineering. Their applications should demonstrate synergy between career goals and the proposed overseas experience. It is expected that Fellows will choose productive careers in biomedical engineering, and that their overseas experience will help their professional development.

Fellows should have a BS or MS degree in biomedical engineering or a closely related field. If not currently enrolled, the applicant’s latest degree may not have been obtained more than two years prior to the start of the grant.

The Whitaker International Fellow award will be approximately one academic year in length, and should be used to conduct work commensurate with the grantee’s experience in BME.
