The attached letter from the Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health has been sent to the most senior officials at universities across the country. It describes this unique and exciting opportunity and provides nomination and application instructions. This opportunity is for a select number of truly outstanding graduate students to attend the Lindau Nobel meeting in Germany this summer.
I encourage you to nominate your best graduate student for this exceptional experience. The timeline is short, so please act promptly so your student can qualify. Nominations are due November 1, 2010.
This year NHGRI will be participating in this initiative. We feel that graduate students supported by NHGRI, whether under research grants or on training grants, could benefit from participation in this meeting. We enthusiastically support this initiative.
The selection process will be extraordinarily competitive. As specified in the attached letter, each university may nominate only two students per sponsoring agency (NIH, DOE, ORAU, and Mars, Incorporated).
We are especially interested in receiving nominations from a diverse group of students, including women, minorities and people with disabilities.
All nominations must be submitted online before Monday, November 1, 2010 at 4:00 pm, Eastern Time. Nominees will be notified by December 1, 2010 whether they have been selected.
