Keystone Symposia Fellows Program

Modified: February 23, 2017

This highly unique, research-driven, diversity-centered program educates early-career scientists regarding the inner workings of the life sciences community and provides a venue for high-level interaction with established and leading scientists nationally and globally. The Fellows Program provides context, understanding and insight regarding the development of high-powered research meetings, utilizing shadowing experiences with scientist organizers and key Keystone Symposia staff members. These experiences allow for learning how the research agenda is set, how to engage in high-level discourse on research topics and how to broaden perspectives in life science research. Please visit the program webpage here for more details and application materials. The closing date for the 2018 Keystone Symposia Fellows program is March 15, 2017.

All candidates must be U.S. Citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents, have an M.D. or Ph.D. in a life science discipline and be actively engaged in laboratory research.

They must also be able to document a commitment to inclusiveness within the life science field, as well as experience in one-to-one mentoring/ experiential learning with students from one of the UR populations listed above.
