Fellowships and Publications Outcomes

Fellowships

Deans of various colleges and Chairs/Directors of participating units contribute 9 funded positions each year to trainees that are equivalent to the NIH fellowships awarded.  24 of our current and former trainees have also received support from WSU through the Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) program since its founding in 2003.

Currently, we have two students that have received 3-year NSF pre-doctoral fellowships to complete their PhDs after Biotech Program support was finished at the end of their second year of graduate study.
