Information Sessions: Schmidt Science Fellowships – April 25 + 26, 2022

The Schmidt Science Fellows program provides the world’s best emerging scientists with new skills and perspectives to develop novel solutions to society’s challenges, become scientific and societal thought leaders, and accelerate ground-breaking discoveries.  The program is looking for the brightest minds in the natural sciences, mathematics, engineering, and computing who are interested in broadening their horizons.  Fellows receive a stipend of $100,000 USD per year and are supported to pursue a one to two year postdoctoral placement at a world-leading laboratory anywhere in the world in a disciplinary pivot from their PhD.  Fellows also benefit from a Global Meeting Series and personalized mentoring program.

Schmidt Science Fellows is hosting a series of online webinars to provide additional information about the Fellowship and further guidance on the application process. A presentation from their Admissions team will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion with some of the current Fellows who will be happy to take questions and discuss their experiences as Schmidt Science Fellows.

The webinars are targeted toward PhD candidates who may be considering applying to Schmidt Science Fellows but it is also open, and of relevance, to institutional staff involved in coordinating nominations.
