This unique fellowship is designed for Ph.D. students who want to pursue a degree in engineering and biomedical research. The awardees of this fellowship will be enrolled in any Ph.D. program in the Cullen College of Engineering and will be co-mentored by a UH and TMHRI faculty member. The student will have opportunities to work in UH and TMHRI laboratories for the duration of their co-mentored project.
