The Whitaker Scholarship is available to biomedical engineering students wishing to continue their studies in a country outside of the United States or Canada. You must have a degree in biomedical engineering by the grant application deadline and either hold a doctorate at the time of application (obtained within two years of the proposed start of the grant) or are currently an advanced Ph.D. candidate who will receive the doctorate prior to departure. You must also be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, have the language ability to carry out the proposed project in the host country at the time of departure. In addition, you must also be nominated by the dean of a school or chair of the biomedical engineering department from which you obtained your doctoral degree.
