NIH offers two different full scholarships for graduate study at Cambridge or Oxford:

  • National Institutes of Health – University of Cambridge Health Science Research Scholars

These doctoral programs at NIH permit graduating seniors from the U.S. to pursue collaborative biomedical research projects between a laboratory at NIH and either Oxford or Cambridge leading to a Ph.D. from that university. Roughly half of a student's thesis work is done on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland, and the other half is done at Oxford or Cambridge. Students may also complete combined M.D./Ph.D. degrees through the program. Open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. NIH also offers summer and undergraduate year scholarships.
