Scholarships

Scholarship applications are being accepted for the Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics (SISG). All current graduate students are eligible to apply for tuition waivers for up to three modules. Please note postdocs are not eligible for SISG scholarships. Scholarship applications are due by March 31 (11:59 p.m. PST). Award notifications will be emailed by Friday, April 12.

Applications received from students attending a university or college in the U.S. will automatically be considered to receive a small travel stipend to help offset costs. International students may apply for module scholarships but, due to funding stipulations, are not eligible to receive a travel award.

Please note that order to save your application, you must complete two "submit" steps. After filling out the initial application there is a "submit" button at the bottom of the screen. Clicking this takes you to a review screen where you can look over your information. There is another "submit" button at the bottom of this page and your application will not be created until you hit this "submit" button as well. Once you have gone through both "submit" steps, you will be able to log in and edit your application.

Please do not register for modules that you request in your scholarship application. If you register for modules and pay via credit card, and then receive a scholarship for those same modules, we must cancel your reservation and assess a $130 fee to cover processing costs (i.e., the refund to the credit card will be the payment minus $130). If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive a unique code to use to register for modules.
