About the Graduate Fellowship Program

The Stanford Bio-X Graduate Fellowship Program provides current Stanford graduate students whose research interests are interdisciplinary in nature with three years of funding support. Because Stanford Bio-X Fellows work on the cutting edge at the intersection of disciplines, their potential to generate transformative discoveries for the benefit of human health is profound.

To date, the Stanford Bio-X Fellowship program has provided 248 graduate students representing 30 different departments with awards to pursue interdisciplinary research and to collaborate with multiple mentors, enhancing their potential to generate profound transformative discoveries. Graduates of the program have transitioned to successful careers in the industry sector, co-founded start-up companies, and hold professorships at Stanford and its peer institutions.

The fellowships are a generous donation by the William K. Bowes Foundation while other generous donors have made the Bio­‐X Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships (Bio­‐X SIGFs), as well as SIGFs affiliated with SNI and ChEM-­H, possible. These donations are helping Stanford strengthen graduate training in interdisciplinary biosciences, thereby spurring important new advances in science and engineering.
