Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program

Application Process

The Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program is open to all U.S. citizens and permanent residents from all cultures and backgrounds. The program supports students pursuing Ph.D.s in the biomedical or behavioral sciences who are interested in diversity and underrepresentation in the sciences.

Application Process

  • Interested students must first apply and be accepted into one of the participating Ph.D. programs.
  • For best consideration, students should notify the Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program staff of their interest and pending application.
  • Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program staff reviews the applications of accepted students and offers are extended on a rolling basis, unless otherwise dictated by the academic program.
  • Acceptance of the Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program offer supersedes any departmental base offer and does not include merit awards.

The Meyerhoff Graduate Program has been more than just a support system for me, it is an extended family."
