fellowships winners

Congratulations to Harvard Physics graduate students Elizabeth Jerison and Debanjan Chowdhury who won the Harvard Merit Scholarship and Nabiha Saklayen who was awarded an International Student Research Fellowship by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

The Harvard Merit/Term Time Research Awards are available to outstanding GSAS students in all fields. These fellowships are normally to be held in the fourth or fifth year, or earlier, and are for the purpose of allowing the students to devote a greater portion of their time to research, fieldwork, and writing than would otherwise be possible if they have a heavy teaching load or other employment.

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute International Student Research Fellowship program supports outstanding international predoctoral students in the biomedical and related sciences, including physical and mathematical sciences. Students invited to participate in this program are eligible for a fellowship to support years three, four, and five of a PhD program.
