|Sujet: HHMI Gilliam Fellowships for Advanced Study in USA Mar 30 Sep 2014 - 5:35|| |
The goal of the Gilliam Fellowships for Advanced Study program is to ensure the development of a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to assume leadership roles in science, including college and university faculty, who have the responsibility to teach the next generation of scientists. Students are chosen for their academic excellence, scientific potential, and commitment to the advancement of diversity and inclusion in the sciences.

The fellowships honor the legacy of the late James H. Gilliam, Jr., an HHMI trustee who devoted his life to fostering excellence and diversity in education and science.
The 2015 competition is open to:
- Alumni of HHMI’s Exceptional Research Opportunities Program (EXROP), regardless of country of origin or nationally, or
- Students nominated by T32 predoctoral training grant principal investigators (PIs) supported by the National Institute for General Medical Sciences (NIGMS); each nominated student must be training grant eligible but does not need to have been a T32 trainee.
Each fellowship will support students for up to three years of their dissertation research, typically in years three, four and five of their PhD studies. Applicants must be in their second or third year of a PhD program in the life sciences or related sciences and have identified a thesis adviser. They must have advanced to candidacy before appointment. Students who are enrolled in an MD/PhD (i.e. Medical Scientist Training Program) program are not eligible.
Your dreams and determination have brought you this far. A Gilliam Fellowship can take you even further.
- Up to three years
- Supports years three, four, and five of a PhD program
- 2015-2016 fellowship year compensation: $43,000
“In the future, I know I’ll face some challenges but the honor of being a Gilliam fellow will definitely stay with me going forward. It gives me the confidence to not only survive in science, but really thrive in science.”Daniel Gilmer
