Presidential Scholars Program


This program aims to recruit outstanding graduate students to all of our graduate school of biomedical science programs. The most outstanding candidates for this highly competitive program receive substantial financial supplements to the normal graduate stipends and academic enrichment activities with an outstanding peer group.

Each year, up to five (5) incoming students are selected to join the program.

Read about the selection process.

Each scholar will receive:

  • a $5,000 annual stipend supplement above the normal graduate fellowship for up to 5 years of study,
  • a one-time $3,000 amount to defray relocation and initial housing costs, and
  • other benefits.
