Hutton Honors College

 — Indiana University

Selected students receive fully-funded training in a program which is accelerated, international, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary in nature. Students are provided with access to the most extensive network of biomedical research labs and technological resources in the world.

The NIH/Oxford/Cambridge Scholars Program selects extraordinarily talented students who are dedicated to pursuing careers in biomedical research and who are ready to choose a research project during the 1st summer of their enrollment in the program.

Those in the NIH/Oxford/Cambridge Scholars Program are from many backgrounds. Aside from the usual undergraduate biomedical studies, there are Scholars with engineering, physics, math, computer science and other majors. NIH/Oxford/Cambridge Scholars come from large and small colleges and universities across America. Among the ranks of current NIH/Oxford/Cambridge Scholars are those who also hold the distinction of being Rhodes, Marshall, Churchill, Fulbright, Gates, Goldwater, and Howard Hughes Scholars.

We look forward to the applications of your most outstanding students interested in PhD and MD/PhD training in biomedical research.
