Laboratory Fellowships

The LEARNED Laboratory Fellowship seeks to support and enhance laboratory training opportunities of bench scientists from underrepresented groups by providing funding to cover the cost of travel to work in a laboratory or professional setting not affiliated with Johns Hopkins University (JHU) for up to 2 weeks. This fellowship will provide a total of four awards in the amount of $5000. Research must be conducted at an accredited university or research institution under the supervision of a highly qualified mentor from a historically underrepresented group with documented experience. The student must be physically present at the host institution of the mentor to carry out the proposed training during the fellowship period.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the application period for laboratory fellowships has been postponed.
