Three GSAS among winners of HHMI fellowships

1 min read

Three Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) students — Nataly Moran Cabili, Ph.D. candidate in systems biology, Mehmet Fisek, Ph.D. candidate in neuroscience, and Le Cong , Ph.D. candidate in biological and biomedical sciences — are among the 48 winners in a new fellowship competition from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) that awards full-time funding to exceptional international students in the third, fourth, and fifth years of their graduate programs in science and engineering.

Offered for the first time this year, the HHMI’s International Student Research Fellowships will allow these talented students to devote their full attention to research at a critical time during their professional development. The awards serve a particularly important role, according to the HHMI, because much of the available funding for graduate education is reserved for U.S. citizens.
