Graduate Scholarships and Fellowships


PhD Student Scholarships/Fellowships
A selection of JHU/WSE resources related to doctoral student fellowships and scholarships:

  • JHU Office of Research: Graduate Student Funding Opportunities (a fairly comprehensive list of fellowships and scholarships)
  • Whiting School of Engineering: Full-time Fellowships and Grants, including a regularly updated list of external fellowships/scholarships:
    Programs include:

    • Vivien Thomas Scholars Initiative
      Announced by Johns Hopkins and Bloomberg Philanthropies in the spring of 2021, the Vivien Thomas Scholars Initiative program is designed to strengthen pathways for students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to pursue and receive PhDs in STEM fields at Johns Hopkins.
    • Siebel Scholars Program
      The Siebel Scholarship program was created by the Siebel Scholars Foundation to recognize exceptional students from the world’s leading graduate schools, in areas that include bioengineering. JHU is one of only a few schools in the country selected to participate in this program and every year, five PhD candidates at Johns Hopkins are awarded this honor. An announcement from your academic administrator about the open application period usually happens in late May and all application materials typically are due to your department administrator in mid-June. If awarded, the scholarship goes into effect the following fall semester. More information about the program, including the nomination process and criteria can be found here.
    • Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Diversity Scholarship
      The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Diversity Scholarship is awarded to a newly-admitted PhD student who has overcome significant socioeconomic barriers and/or is a first-generation graduate student. The recipient of the ChemBE Diversity Scholarship must remain in resident, full-time status and in good academic standing. If the recipient continues to meet this criteria, they will receive the scholarship each academic year until they graduate from the program. Incoming students cannot apply directly for the Diversity Scholarship. Rather, it is awarded to a particular student based on the recommendation of the ChemBE department head and the Chair and the ChemBE PhD Faculty Admissions Committee. The scholarship may not be awarded every year if requirements are not met. For more information, contact:
