The total annual cost of supporting a fellow is currently $49,984 (including tuition, fees, stipend, benefits, and fellow support). For the first two years of the fellowship, the costs are shared as follows: 1/3 Methodist Academy, 1/3 UH Cullen College of Engineering, 1/3 divided among UH and HMRI mentors (1/6 per mentor). Each mentor is expected to pay approximately $5,450 for each of the first two years. After Year 2, the UH and HMRI mentors are expected to support the full cost of the students. The sharing of these costs will be negotiated between the co-mentors.

  • The Methodist Hospital Research Institute
  • The University of Houston

The UH/HMRI Graduate Fellowship is designed for UH and HMRI faculty to co-mentor highly competitive graduate students through an innovative clinical translational research project. The co-mentors are highly encouraged to seek external funding for future student stipends and laboratory research costs.
