Schmidt Science Fellows

The Schmidt Science Fellows program aims to expand the horizons of the next generation of leaders and innovators in the natural sciences, engineering, mathematics, and computing. We enhance the ability of the world’s most promising new scientists to develop cutting-edge research, and equip them with the skills to serve as leaders in their fields and in society.

Selected institutions nominate students for the fellowship in August of each year. Students must be receiving their PhD by July of the following year - fellowship awardees are announced in spring of the following year and the 11-month fellowship program begins in July.
