  1. Howard Hughes Medical Institute Predoctoral Fellowships in Biological
  Sciences
    Application deadline:  November 4, 1994
    -  Open to citizens or nationals of the United States or foreign
  nationals for graduate work in    research-based doctoral programs (PhD
  or ScD) in biological sciences.
    -  The following fields are eligible for support: biochemistry,
  biophysics, biostatistics, cell    biology and regulation, developmental
  biology, epidemiology, genetics, immunology,    mathematical biology,
  microbiology, molecular biology, neuroscience, pharmacology,
  physiology, structural biology, and virology.
    -  These fellowships are intended for students at or near the beginning
  of their graduate study        toward a PhD or ScD degree in the
  designated biological sciences. Applicants must not have   completed, by
  the beginning of the fall 1994 term, one year or more of
  postbaccalaureate             graduate study in biological sciences,
  whether or not that study was toward a master's or    doctoral degree or
  was outside of a degree program.
    -  The following will not preclude eligibility: 1) graduate study that
  took place more than 10 years    prior to application, 2) graduate study
  toward a Master of Public Health degree, 3) study in    biological
  sciences that was toward a medical or dental degree (MD, DO, DVM, or
  DDS), and                4) graduate study prior to entry into medical or
  dental school.
    -  If study has been part time, the applicant must not have completed
  more than seven courses        in a semester system or more than eight
  courses in a quarter system. To be considered    part-time, the program
  of study must have been limited to no more than two courses each
  semester or quarter.
    -  Individuals who are pursuing or who hold medical or dental degrees
  (MD, DO, DVM, or DDS)          may also be eligible to apply for
  predoctoral fellowships. As in the case of other applicants,    support
  is only for full-time study toward the PhD or ScD degree in the
  designated biological          sciences and is intended for those at the
  beginning of their graduate study toward such a    degree. These
  applicants also must not have completed, by the beginning of the fall
  1994                term, the first year of a full-time graduate program
  in biological sciences, or the equivalent in    part-time study.
    -  Medical students who have received financial support through a
  funded MD/PhD program          (whether formal or informal) are not
  eligible for these fellowships.
    -  Applicants must have scores from the GRE General Test; if not
  provided, the fellowship        application will be withdrawn from the
  competition.
    -  Foreign nationals whose primary language is not English are required
  to submit scores from          the Test of English as a Foreign Language
  (TOEFL). If a required TOEFL score is not     provided to the NRC, the
  fellowship application will be withdrawn from the competition.

  Indians, Black/African Americans, Mexican     Americans/Chicanos, Native
  Pacific Islanders (Polynesian or Micronesian), and Puerto    Ricans.
    -  Awards are made for study in research-based doctoral  programs (PhD
  or ScD) that will lead         to careers in teaching and research at the
  university or college level in the behavioral and    social sciences,
  humanities, engineering, mathematics, physical sciences, and life
  sciences.
    -  Study in programs that are practice-oriented is not supported.
  Awards are not made for work    leading to degrees in areas related to
  business, administration, management, health     sciences, home
  economics, library science, speech pathology, audiology, personnel,
  guidance, social work, fine arts, performing arts, or education.
    -  Awards are not made for work leading to terminal masters degrees,
  doctorates in education        (PhD or EdD), Doctor of Fine Arts (DFA)
  degrees, professional degrees in such areas as    medicine, law, or
  public health, or for study in joint degree programs such as MD/PhD,
  JD/PhD, and MFA/PhD programs.
    -  Persons holding a doctoral degree  earned in any field at any time
  are not eligible to apply.
    Predoctoral Fellowships are intended for students who are at or near
  the beginning of their        graduate study.
    -  Applicants must not have completed, by the beginning of the fall
  1994 term, more than 30        semester hours, 45 quarter hours, or
  equivalent, of graduate-level study in fields supported by    this
  program whether or not credit for that study is applied toward another
  advanced degree               (including a master's degree).
  "Graduate-level study" includes course work, research, and    seminars.
  This guideline is applied to graduate study completed after October 1,
  1984.

  Test scores from tests        taken since October 1, 1989.
