Dear STEM Deans, Chairs, and Coordinators,
The Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs Division will again be accepting nominations for the Schmidt Science Fellows program. I invite you to nominate your soon-to-be and newest Ph.D. alumni for this exciting program. Please help us assemble an outstanding group of nominees with both disciplinary and demographic diversity, by nominating your top students for this program Nominations are due by May 4th, 2022. UC San Diego will nominate 7 applicants to represent the university.
The goal of the program aims to develop the next generation of science leaders to transcend disciplines, advance discovery, and solve the world’s most pressing problems. Schmidt Science Fellows are expected to be future leaders and should demonstrate a keen interest in harnessing interdisciplinarity and interaction with wider society to accelerate discovery to achieve global impact. Fellows will be supported by the program to undertake a full-time, postdoctoral study for at least one year in a world-leading laboratory in a field different from their existing area of expertise.
