Scholarships from NIH with Oxford/Cambridge University

The National Institutes of Health-University of Cambridge Health Science Research Scholars and the National Institutes of Health-University of Oxford Scholars in Biomedical Research.

These are relatively new doctoral programs at the National Institutes of Health that permit American students to pursue collaborative biomedical research projects between a laboratory at NIH and either Oxford or Cambridge University, leading to a Ph.D. from that university. This program offers a unique experience in international collaborative research.

Moreover, the Oxford/Cambridge program allows students to complete a Ph.D. in any area of biomedical research in three or four years. Roughly half of their thesis work is done on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland; the other half is done at Oxford or Cambridge where they are members of colleges and participate fully in university life.

The NIH is the largest biomedical research facility in the world and has trained over 100 Nobel laureates. The NIH-Oxford-Cambridge program is now six years old with 65 students enrolled. It has attracted outstanding students (the average GPA this year for the entering class was 3.9 on a 4 point scale; only the top 9 percent of the applicant pool was accepted).

About one third of the students actually come from medical schools. Both the Marshall and the Rhodes scholarships have formed an alliance with the NIH scholarship so that their science students can participate in the NIH program.

Students are fully funded for their tuition, college fees, health insurance, and stipend. They also receive a laptop computer and a generous travel allowance. Finally, financial support has just been approved for students desiring to complete combined M.D./Ph.D. degrees through the program.

This is an exceptional opportunity for the brightest students.  Additional information about the Scholarships can be found on these websites.
