  • Biomedical Engineering Graduate Fellowships

    The Joint Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) - University of
    Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) Biomedical Engineering and Medical
    Physics PhD Program is pleased to announce federal and institutional funds
    to support Biomedical Engineering doctoral students. Federal funds are
    available through the US Department of Education Graduate Assistance in
    Areas of National Need (GAANN) Program. Graduate students with
    demonstrated superior ability, excellent academic records, and with
    financial need are eligible. This program is intended to increase the
    number of US citizens (nationals or permanent residents) who receive
    doctoral degrees in Biomedical Engineering.

    Doctoral fellows will be eligible for full financial support for a minimum
    of two years provided they maintain good academic standing and satisfactory
    progress. Fellows will participate in ongoing teaching and research
    activities. GAANN Fellowships provide a yearly stipend. In addition,
    tuition, fees, and conference travel support is provided for the first 2
    years with additional support for subsequent years provided from ongoing
    research programs. Current teaching and research within the Biomedical
    Engineering Dept. at WPI focuses on three general areas of biomedical
    engineering: 1) Biomechanics & biomaterials; 2) Biosensors & medical
    instrumentation; and 3) Medical imaging. Additional research and teaching
    directions are available at UMMS and through collaborations with local
    universities and the medical device/biotechnology industry.

    Interested candidates should submit a letter requesting a graduate
    admissions packet to the Joint WPI-UMMS Biomedical Engineering and Medical
    Physics Program. Please state your interest in the GAANN Fellowships and a
    potential area of research involvement. Letters can be addressed to:
