The National Institutes of Health-Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program is offered for the year 2010/11 to outstanding science students committed to biomedical research at the NIH intramural campus in Bethesda, Maryland and one at either Oxford or Cambridge University
The National Institutes of Health-Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program is an accelerated, individualized doctoral training program for outstanding science students committed to biomedical research. It enables students to undertake a collaborative project in any area of biomedical investigation involving two mentors–one at the NIH intramural campus in Bethesda, Maryland and one at either Oxford or Cambridge University. Students conduct research at both locations and potentially other sites including field work in Africa and elsewhere around the world.
Outstanding science students committed to biomedical research
All students participate in the enriched environment of the residential colleges of the U.K. Universities and enjoy special educational opportunities that develop their understanding of disease outcomes and policy issues related to their studies. The projects culminate in the award of a D.Phil or Ph.D. in science from either Oxford or Cambridge. Students may also pursue combined M.D./Ph.D. training through partnerships the program maintains with a broad range of American medical schools. The program is one of the NIH Graduate Partnerships Program offerings.
How to Apply:
- Apply online at https://gpp-nih.symplicity.com/.
- Only the GPP application is required for admission consideration to the NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program. Matriculants will submit their University applications to Oxford and/or Cambridge in early spring when they are admitted to the program, although they are free to submit them sooner if they wish in order to reserve spaces at the colleges of their choice. Students may only establish a collaboration at a University to which they have submitted an application, but they may submit applications to both Universities if they are unclear at the time of admission which one they plan to attend.
Questions about the overall GPP and technical issues about the application system should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions related to the OxCam Program specifically should be directed to Bridget Lampert (email@example.com) or Rachel Schulman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
