Gruber Science Fellowship
About the Fellowship
Established in 2011 by the Gruber Foundation, the Gruber Science Fellowship is awarded to the most highly ranked applicants to Yale PhD programs in the life sciences, cosmology, and astrophysics. This Fellowship is the most prestigious award offered by Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to incoming science students in recognition of their outstanding accomplishments and exceptional promise.
Gruber Science Fellows receive a stipend supplement and a research account in addition to the standard stipend and tuition award given to students in their respective PhD programs. Fellows are also entitled to participate in Fellowship events and activities including meetings with seminar speakers and lecturers and a fall reception for new Fellows.
