The purpose of these fellowships is to provide opportunities for continuing generations of able and accomplished New Americans to achieve leadership in their chosen fields. The program is established in recognition fo the contributions New Americans have made to American and in gratitude for the opportunities the US has afforded the donors and their families. These awards were established to help 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 experience. 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.
