The last UM internal deadline for nominations was 8/17/2020. Interested PhD Candidates should secure a letter from their department’s Chair of Dean. See UMOR’s announcement for more information. The Schmidt Science Fellows program aims to equip the next generation of leaders and innovators with the tools and opportunities to drive world-changing advances across the sciences and society by giving them a year of scientific broadening between their PhD and the start of their research career. In partnership with the Rhodes Trust and elite academic institutions from across the globe, we aim to assemble a diverse array of Fellows who have recently completed PhDs in the sciences and engineering, and challenge them to expand their scientific and societal horizons.
