Student Research Opportunities and Fellowships

NIH Director's Early Independence Awards (DP5) - The NIH Directors Early Independence Award Program supports exceptional investigators who wish to pursue independent research directly after completion of their terminal doctoral/research degree or clinical residency, thereby forgoing the traditional post-doctoral training period and accelerating their entry into an independent research career. Application Due Date(s): September 22, 2017..

Eisenhower Exchange Fellowships Global Program - EF provides a unique leadership development opportunity for individuals who have a demonstrated track record of significant professional and community achievements and who seek to tackle big challenges in the future. Competitive candidates articulate goals for the fellowship program and propose steps to achieve them. EF seeks ascendant leaders who are committed to making the world more peaceful, prosperous and just, and who are committed to a lifelong engagement with EF's network of nearly 1,500 active leaders around the world. A three-day Opening Seminar launches the fellowship and lays the groundwork for lifelong bonds as colleagues, friends and Eisenhower Fellows. Fellows have time to learn more about one another and engage in lively conversation about global matters with international journalists, policy experts and others. After a few weeks of independent fellowship travel, Fellows gather for a long weekend to enjoy a much-needed break and engage in a reflective retreat. During Closing Seminar, which concludes the fellowship, Fellows share stories about the meaning of their fellowships and prepare final reports in which they lay out their plans for implementing their fellowship projects once they return home.  Application Due Date: June 1, 2017.
