Penn Genomics

The Penn Genomics Institute announces a Graduate Student Fellowship Award program for 2007. This award will go to a senior graduate student  (third year or longer) who has demonstrated excellence in the field of genomics research. The award will consist of one year of stipend and tuition support plus a $3,000 grant to be used in the furtherance of the student’s thesis research objectives. Applicants from any Penn graduate program are eligible for this award.

The application process requires the following:

1) One-page synopsis of the student’s thesis work and its relevance to genomics.

2) A nomination letter from the student’s thesis advisor.

Upon review of the submitted applications a subset of the applicants will be asked to give a 15-minute slide presentation of their work to the selection committee. The awardee will be selected from those invited to give slide presentations. Two nonrenewable PGI Graduate Student Fellowships will be awarded in 2007. Awards will be made within one week of the final slide presentation.

Deadline: January 15, 2007. Application materials should be e-mailed to the PGI Graduate Fellowship Committee, c/o Mariann Winkelman at mwinkelm@genomics.upenn.edu.
