The Augustine Fellowship recognizes outstanding students who are participating in the MD/MS Dual-Degree Program through the University of Minnesota's Medical School and Department of Biomedical Engineering. This program will uniquely prepare new physicians as opinion leaders and bridge builders between medicine and engineering in the evolving biomedical engineering/healthcare industry, a field that applies high-tech research to improvements in health.

Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellowship (IDF)

This Graduate School fellowship awards outstanding graduate students with interdisciplinary dissertation topics who would benefit from interaction with faculty at one of the University's interdisciplinary research centers or institutes. IEM is pleased to be one of the sites for the Graduate School's Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellowships, which are located in the University's interdisciplinary research centers and institutes.

IDF applicants are required to include a letter of support from the center or institute's director in their application. In order to be considered for a letter of support from IEM, students must submit a preliminary application directly to IEM with support from one of IEM faculty members.

Additional information on this program, including deadlines for application, can be found through the University of Minnesota's Graduate School website:>
