Howard Hughes Medical Institute: 2017 Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is pleased to announce the new Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program. This program seeks to increase diversity in the biomedical research community by recruitment and retention of individuals from groups underrepresented in the life sciences. Through their successful careers as academic scientists, Hanna H. Gray Fellows will move science forward and inspire the next generation of scientists from America’s diverse talent pool.

Fellows will receive funding for their postdoctoral training and, if eligible, in their early career years as independent faculty. The program includes opportunities for career development, including mentoring and active involvement in the HHMI scientific community. The Institute will select up to 15 Fellows in this first competition, which will open in Fall 2016.

Eligibility:

Fellows will receive a non-renewable grant of $80,000 annually for up to four years of postdoctoral training support followed by a non-renewable grant of $270,000 annually for up to four years of the faculty phase, if program criteria are met.

Applications are due on February 15, 2017. Mentor and reference letters must be received by February 23, 2017.
