We are thrilled to announce the opening of applications for the Neurodiversity Inspired Science and Engineering (NISE) graduate fellowship for the upcoming academic year. NISE is a unique fellowship program that seeks to advance the field of science and engineering by embracing the strengths and talents of neurodiverse individuals.

Fellows will receive financial support and have access to a wide range of resources, including mentoring, career development opportunities, and a supportive community of like-minded individuals. We are looking for exceptional candidates who demonstrate academic excellence, creativity, and a passion for advancing the field of science and engineering.

Eligible programs for fellowship support include the School of Engineering (all graduate programs), the College of Arts and Science (natural sciences graduate programs), the School of Medicine (basic sciences graduate programs) and the Graduate School (data science).

If you are a graduate student who identifies as neurodiverse, we invite you to apply for the NISE fellowship. To learn more about the fellowship program see this recent Vanderbilt news release. The application deadline is June 16th 2023.
