The program invests in graduate trainees who are committed to advancing equity and inclusion in science and empowers them as future science leaders. The Fellowship also provides support for thesis advisers to enhance their mentorship skills and act as change-makers to develop more inclusive and healthy scientific training environments.
Each adviser-student pair receives an annual award of $53,000 for up to three years. Fellows join a vibrant community and are offered leadership training, professional development, and opportunities to engage with and learn from peers, program alumni, and HHMI scientists.
Their advisers also join a cohort of peers, participate in HHMI’s intensive, one-year mentorship skills development course, and create a project that promotes healthy and inclusive graduate training environments.
