Biomedical Scholarships

Here are some of the Biomedical scholarships on our site for which you may qualify.

AFPE Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Program

Students who have completed at least three (3) semesters of graduate study toward the Ph.D. and who have no more than three (3) years remaining to obtain the Ph.D. degree in a graduate program in the pharmaceutical sciences administered by a U.S. college of pharmacy. Students enrolled in joint Pharm.D./Ph.D. programs are eligible to apply if they have completed the equivalent of three full semesters of graduate credit toward the Ph.D., and if the Ph.D. degree will be awarded within three (3) additional years. The applicant must be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident. Number of awards and stipends: Up to eighty (80) Fellowships (renewals and new awards) are awarded annually. Fellowship stipends can range from $6,000 to $10,000 annually. The Fellowship stipend may be used for any purpose decided by the awardee and college that will enable the student to make progress in their pursuit of the Ph.D. - e.g. student stipend, laboratory supplies, books, materials, travel, etc. None of the funds shall be used for indirect costs by the institution. No support is provided beyond a maximum of three years. The number of AFPE Pre-doctoral Fellowships awarded each year depends on the availability of funds.

National Institutes of Health UG Scholarship Program

Applications are available in the Financial Aid Office unless otherwise indicated.The NIH Undergraduate Scholarships will be awarded to students on a competitive basis who show a commitment to pursuing careers in biomedical, behavioral and social science research at the NIH.

ACS Scholars Program

The ACS Scholars Program and Project Seed are 2001 winners of The Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring. The ACS Scholars Program is a 1997 winner of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) Award of Excellence. The American Chemical Society sponsors scholarship programs for qualified applicants who want to enter the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, or chemical engineering, and students seeking a two-year degree in chemical technology. The programs are designed to encourage African-American, Hispanic, and American Indian students to pursue undergraduate college degrees in the chemical sciences and chemical technology. The goal of these scholarship programs is to aid in building an awareness of the value and the rewards associated with careers in science and to assist students in acquiring the skills and credentials needed for success in these areas. The scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit and financial need to high school seniors planning a science preparatory program of study, and college students who are currently freshmen, sophomores, or juniors who are committed to the study of chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering or other chemically related fields such as environmental science, materials science or toxicology and are interested in pursuing careers in one of these fields. Students interested in two-year chemical technology programs and careers in this field are also eligible. Students must have strong academic records and show an interest in and potential for careers in the chemical sciences. Students intending to pursue careers in medicine are not eligible for scholarship awards. The amount of each individual award will depend upon the availability of funding, the number of scholarships awarded, and evidence of financial need. Scholarships will be given up to a maximum of $3,000 per year. The awards in the ACS Scholars Program, as well as those in the co-sponsored programs are renewable.

Howard Hughes Medical Inst. Predoctoral Fellowship

Open to citizens or nationals of the United States or foreign nationals. Awards will be made for study toward a PhD or ScD degree in the following biological sciences: biochemistry, bioinformatics, biophysics, biostatistics, cell biology, developmental biology, epidemiology, genetics, immunology, mathematical and computational biology, microbiology, molecular biology, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology, structural biology, and virology. At the time of application, applicants must not have completed one academic year or more of post-baccalaureate study in biological sciences. The following will not preclude eligibility: 1) graduate study that took place more than 10 years prior to application; 2) graduate study toward an MPH degree; 3) study in biological sciences that was toward a medical or dental degree (MD, DO, DDS, or DVM); and 4) graduate study prior to entry into medical or dental school.

Student Awards

Up to five graduate student awards for outstanding biomedical engineering research and/or design projects. The awards consist of a certificate, a stipend of $600, registration for the BMES Annual Fall Meeting, and travel expenses up to $400. If there is more than one author/winner, the award is to be shared amongst the winners. Up to five undergraduate student awards for outstanding biomedical engineering research and/or design projects.

No awards are made to those who have already attained an M.D., Ph.D., D.D.S., D.V.M., etc. Applicants must be actively involved or be planning active involvement in a specific biomedical or biochemical research project in the field of aging. The individuals most often chosen utilize modern and innovative approaches and technologies. Molecular and cellular biology, immunology, cancer, neurobiology, biochemistry, and molecular biophysics are all approaches deemed of interest to AFAR. Sociological, psychological, and health-professional related (physical therapy, exercise physiology, etc.) research in the field is currently not being funded.

$1000 Fall 2017 Creative Biolabs Scholarship

As a leading custom service provider specialized in the field of antibody production and engineering, Creative Biolabs is always happy to support young and ambitious talents in our field. In an effort to further support their research and higher education in the medical and science-related field, Creative Biolabs is proud to announce its first Fall Scholarship Program following the successful Spring Scholarship Program. Also, we’ll award $1,000 to an outstanding college student in fall 2017! Undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. students, majoring in a science related field such as Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Molecular Biology, are encouraged to apply.

National Institute of General Medical Sciences Grant Awards

Support for research and research training in basic biomedical sciences. Most grants are dedicated to advanced research or to institutional support. However, individual awards under the Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) program fund predoctoral fellowships for members of minority groups underrepresented in the biomedical or behavioral sciences in the U.S.: African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Pacific Islanders. A similar program funds predoctoral work for students with disabilities. Both fellowships are highly selective, and provide up to five years of support for research training leading to a Ph.D. or equivalent research degree, a combined M.D.-Ph.D. degree, or another combined professional doctorate-research Ph.D. in biomedical or behavioral sciences. Support includes an annual stipend, tuition and fee allowance, and other benefits. Application deadlines occur in May and November.

Donald A. B. Lindberg Research Fellowship

The Lindberg Research Fellowship Endowment, established in 2003, will provide a $10,000 grant, awarded annually by MLA through a competitive grant process. The purpose of this fellowship is to fund research aimed at expanding the research knowledgebase, linking the information services provided by librarians to improved health care and advances in biomedical research.
