African American undergraduate students
who are interested in science to further
their science education and potentially
pursue science careers.
Applicants need not be Wellesley
graduates and should be interested in
studying medicine with a view towards
general practice (excluding psychiatry).
Fellowships should have a BS or MS in
biomedical engineering (BME). Because
some institutions do not offer biomedical
engineering or its equivalent as a degree
program, exceptions may be made based
on a demonstrated commitment to the
field of BME through significant
coursework, research, laboratory or work
Wendy Loughlin (University of Maryland) and Emil Chuck (George Mason University) are to be
acknowledged for the entries on this list. One should consult financial aid officers at health
professional schools for more options.
