Bellows Cardiovascular Graduate Research Fellowship

The Molecular Cardiovascular Research Theme Program in partnership with the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, and the Sarver Heart Center is pleased to announce the establishment of the Bellows Cardiovascular Graduate Research Fellowship. This award has been made possible due to a generous gift provided by the Bellows Foundation. This is a competitive award intended to support incoming/first year graduate students who have applied to the University of Arizona to pursue a Ph.D. degree involving education and research training in cardiovascular life sciences. The purpose of this award is to encourage and support the recruitment of outstanding graduate students whose research interests will lead to studies with an emphasis in cardiovascular research.

ELIGIBILTY: Prospective graduate students of competitive standing who apply to the Cell Biology and Anatomy, or the Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate program at the University of Arizona are eligible. The graduate program recruitment committee or chair may submit up to three applications for review. Only the most competitive recruits will be offered this award, and only the selected students who matriculate will receive the award. If the student selected does not matriculate the monies will remain with the Molecular Cardiovascular Research Program.

SELECTION CRITERIA: Awards will be made on the basis of the strength of the prospective graduate student's application materials and recommendation letters and brief (one paragraph) statement of interest in multidisciplinary cardiovascular research. The application materials should clearly demonstrate the competitiveness of the student based on scholarly achievements and their previous research experiences. For more details please contact Charlotte Todd at 520-626-1110.
