The goal of MGNI is to provide an opportunity for the world's leading thinkers to supplement their current focus of study with interdisciplinary research. Working in teams across disciplines, participants will address the myriad angles of a single question, or a series of questions, through focused research. For participants, it is an opportunity to advance their own intellectual journey in an extraordinary way, while advancing society's understanding of the most complex questions of the universe.

Eligibility:
  • To apply for a grant, a group must consist of five or more qualified persons, and must be interdisciplinary in nature. It is unlikely that applications from groups of fewer than five initial members will be selected.
  • The applicant group should consist of university-affiliated scholars who together can demonstrate a well-balanced diversity of disciplinary expertise in areas of scientific, philosophical and religious concern as well as an eagerness to transcend the disciplinary boundaries of knowledge. Such groups could encompass committees of faculty, individuals from interdisciplinary programs or departments, groups of clinicians and students in the practice of medicine, and new initiatives within organizations specifically designed to advance transdisciplinary projects.
  • The group chair or, in the case of applications from graduate students, a responsible co-chair, should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree.
  • The applicant group that receives an MGNI grant must operate as, or be under the auspices of, a not-for-profit institution. In most cases, this will be a college or university.
  • Independently operating organizations must consist of well-qualified college or university faculty or be clearly linked to a college or university.
Award Amount:
  • The program awards three-year grants of $30,000 paid in annual installments of $10,000 to support the program costs of globally networked, locally acting Metanexus groups who are dedicated to exploring the fundamental questions of life, the universe and humanity through the lens of multiple disciplines.

Whitaker International Fellowship

The Whitaker International Program sends emerging leaders in U.S. biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) overseas to undertake a self-designed project that will enhance their own careers within the field.

The Whitaker Fellowships and Scholarships are for students of biomedical engineering who wish to pursue research and training abroad. A Whitaker International Fellow or Scholar experience will ideally advance an emerging biomedical engineering career, while also advancing the goal of increased international collaboration in BME. The Program consists of two distinct branches: Whitaker Fellows and Whitaker Scholars. Whitaker Fellows are biomedical engineers (or bioengineers, which is considered synonymous) ranging from graduating undergraduate seniors to those conducting doctoral studies. Whitaker Scholars are biomedical engineers who have/will have a PhD by the beginning date of their awards. Applicants are eligible ONLY for one or the other (depending on their academic level). Please see website for details.

Eligibility:
  • Have a Bachelor's or Master's degree in biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) by the start of the grant period. If you are at an institution that does not offer a formalized BME program, an applicant should have a demonstrated commitment to the field of BME. Significant coursework, research, laboratory/work experience are some of the ways to demonstrate such commitment.
  • Have NOT received a doctorate by the grant start date.
  • Have U.S. citizenship, or are a permanent legal resident of the U.S.
  • Have language ability to carry out the proposed project in the host country at the time of departure.
  • Are currently enrolled or have obtained your most recent degree within three years of your proposed start date.
  • Have received a nomination letter from the dean of a school or chair of the biomedical engineering department at the institution you are attending, or have most recently attended.
Award Amount:
  • The Whitaker International Fellows and Scholars Program offers a stipend commensurate with the recipient's experience and expected expenses in the host country.
Deadline:
  • Late January
