The Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research is now soliciting proposals for several fellowships for graduate student support for Academic Year 2015/2016. Each source of funding has an emphasis on students working in the broad area of cancer research. Funds are available in the following categories:
1. Seven (7) fellowships are available through Koch, Ludwig and other endowed funds for School of Science graduate students working in cancer research.
2. One (1) fellowship is available through blended Koch Institute funds for an MIT graduate student working in cancer research.
3. Three (3) fellowships are available through the Ludwig Research Funds in support of MIT graduate students with metastasis as their research focuses.
Awards will fund academic year stipend (9-Months at the standard School of Science/Engineering stipend rate), medical insurance and tuition for each successful candidate. Selection criteria include demonstrated progress and accomplishments, cancer relevance and potential of student to realize the goals of the project. Preference will be given to students in the later years of their PhD research.
