The Whitaker International Fellowship sends emerging leaders in U.S. biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) overseas to undertake a self-designed project that will enhance their careers within the field. The goal of the program is to assist the development of professional leaders who are not only superb scientists, but who also will advance the profession through an international outlook. Along with supporting grant projects in an academic setting, the Whitaker International Fellowship encourages grantees to engage in policy work and propose projects in an industry setting. Fellows will conduct academic or scientific research in a university or laboratory, pursue coursework at an academic institution, or intern at a policy institute, industrial, or non-profit setting.
