Six MD Students Chosen as HHMI Medical Research Fellows

Thursday, May 12, 2016

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute has awarded fellowships to five Duke medical students and a renewal to a sixth.  Each medical fellow receives $41,000 in grant support, and first year fellows are eligible to apply for a second year in the program. 

The program has funded more than 1,700 students since its launch in 1989, and is one of the few privately funded programs in the nation that sponsor year-long fellowships for medical, dental and veterinary students. HHMI received 195 applications for this year’s program, up from 187 in the previous year.
