HHMI - Gilliam Fellowships for Adanced Studies

The goal of HHMI’s Gilliam Fellowships for Advanced Study
program is to ensure that a diverse and highly trained
workforce is available to assume leadership roles in science,
including college and university faculty who have the
responsibility to develop the next generation of scientists.
The training of scientists and engineers has long been a
cornerstone of public science policy. HHMI has invested and
continues to invest substantially in graduate and medical
research education through the direct support of fellowship
and training programs. The Gilliam Fellowships for Advanced
Study program promotes excellence in the life sciences and
related fi elds by helping young scientists with exceptional
promise engage in high-quality graduate education.
The Gilliam Fellowships for Advanced Study were created
in 2004 in honor of the late James H. Gilliam, Jr., a charter
Trustee of HHMI and chair of its Audit and Compensation
Committee. Mr. Gilliam was a respected business and civic
leader who spent his life nurturing excellence and diversity in
science and education.

 

  • Up to three years
  • Supports years three, four, and five of a PhD program
  • 2015-2016 fellowship year compensation: $43,000

Arnold Q. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows

Bekman Requirements

JHU Limited Submission Cover Sheet

 

Please note: There are specific requirements for the candidate and the required mentor. READ the Beckman requirements to view the specific instructions to apply for this announcements.

The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation is pleased to announce the Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award. This award program is intended to support postdoctoral scholars with the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in chemistry and the life sciences, and to assist in their transition from “mentored yet independent” postdoctoral to an independent, tenure-track position. Nearly all successful academic careers in science at present begin with a postdoctoral period of additional training and development prior to the first tenure tract appointment. These individuals are expected to become the next generation of leaders and innovators in science, engineering, and technology.

Fellows will be appointed for two years, and may begin as early as August of their application year, and no later than December 31.  The award amount will range from $57,000 - $67,000 based on research experience with 75% of the award going towards the stipend, which may be supplemented from other sources, and 25% used towards research expenditures.

Mickey Leland 2015 Energy Fellowship

Internship Program

The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF) Program provides college students with an opportunity to gain and develop research skills with the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy for 10 weeks over the summer. This program is designed to increase awareness of DOE research opportunities to students pursuing STEM degrees (short for science, technology, engineering and math). The goal of the program is to improve opportunities for under-represented students in these fields, however all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply. Participants will:
• Train under the mentorship of program officials and scientists to obtain valuable experience on mission-related research programs while gaining insight into how the DOE is working to meet the energy challenges of the future.

• Present research findings at a “Technical Forum” and tour a technical site located nearby.

Funding varies:

Receive a stipend. Some participants may be eligible to receive housing and travel allowance for the duration of the program.
