The Washington Research Foundation (WRF) Innovation Graduate Fellows in Neuroengineering Program provides support for Ph.D. students whose research relates to both neuroscience and quantitative approaches in math, computer science, or engineering.  Graduate students in any UW degree-granting program who have committed to doing research in the laboratory of one of the participating faculty members are welcome to apply for admission to the program.  Co-mentoring between experimental and theoretical or engineering groups is encouraged.

WRF Innovation Graduate Fellows in Neuroengineering are provided with an annual $30,000 stipend for two years, as well as full tuition coverage during that time.   Fellows will participate in a seminar series and annual symposium. A second year of funding will be provided after approval of the faculty mentor and after verification of sufficient progress and participation in WRF and UWIN program activities. Pursuit of ongoing funding from other sources is encouraged and supported.

Application deadlines will be noted on this website and distributed to participating faculty.  Although applications may be submitted at any time, they will not be reviewed until the next deadline.  Typically, successful candidates will be at the end of their first or second year of graduate studies.

Individuals from underrepresented minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications are evaluated on: a) Fit to mission of UWIN, b) Qualifications of candidate, c) Research plan, and d) Letter of support from advisor.
