Stanford Neurosciences Institute partners with the Vice Provost for Graduate Education to award Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships (SIGFs) in the area of neuroscience. These fellowships provide current graduate students, whose research interests are in the interdisciplinary neurosciences, with three years of funding support. The Institute plans to grow our Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships Program to a total of 30 fellows over time.
Three independent institutes under the Dean of Research: Bio-X, Stanford Neurosciences Institute, and ChEM-H, in conjunction with the Vice Provost for Graduate Education, are working together to award this year's graduate fellowships in the biosciences. Applications received will be considered for SIGFs affiliated with the Neurosciences Institute, Bio-X-Bowes Fellowships, Bio-X SIGFs, and SIGFs affiliated with ChEM-H. Graduate students in the Neurosciences should apply through the Bio-X application process.
Graduate students including neuroscience-themed research proposals in their application and interested in being sponsored by the Neurosciences Institute should select "Stanford Neurosciences Institute Fellowship" on their application to be considered for the SIGF affiliated with the Neurosciences Institute as well as for Bio-X Fellowships. The Neurosciences Institute is grateful to Bio-X and the Bio-X Leadership Council for incorporating the SIGFs affiliated with the Institute into this year’s round of their long-standing and successful program.
