Fannie and John Hertz Foundation Fellowship

Deadline: Late October

The Hertz Foundation supports graduate students working toward a Ph.D. in the applied physical, biological, and engineering sciences. The foundation does not support study in pursuit of an M.D. or work in descriptive biology, although it may support the Ph.D. portion of a joint M.D./Ph.D. study program. The Graduate Fellowship Award consists of a cost-of-education allowance and a stipend. The cost-of-education allowance is accepted by all of the tenable schools.
