Alfred E. Mann Innovation in Engineering Doctoral Fellowships

As part of its continuing commitment to innovation in engineering AMI-USC is funding three PhD fellowships in the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Each fellowship will provide a stipend of $33,000 per year, renewable for up to 3 years, and is intended to support students conducting doctoral research that is either interdisciplinary in nature (biology, medicine, engineering) or relevant to biology and medicine. Tuition will be covered by the USC Viterbi School of Engineering.

Qualified engineering doctoral students are eligible for consideration. Candidates must be nominated by their respective engineering departments. Each nominated student will be required to submit a research proposal focusing on the technological innovation and the potential impact of their doctoral research on biomedical engineering or healthcare.

Selection of the fellows will be made by a Committee chaired by the Senior Associate Dean of Engineering for Academic Affairs, with representatives from AMI-USC and USC Stevens Center for Innovation.

Alfred E. Mann Biomedical Engineering Doctoral Fellowships

The Alfred E. Mann Biomedical Engineering Fellowship was established in 1998 by AMI-USC and USC with the first fellowship awarded in the Fall of 1999. The Fellow is selected by the faculty of the Biomedical Engineering department of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering from incoming or new students in the departmental doctoral program. The fellowship includes a $33,000 stipend and tuition remission and is generally awarded for a period of three years.
