UTK and the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships (ONSF) invites you to attend a special presentation on the Whitaker International Grants program by Ms. Sabeen Altaf, Senior Program Officer, from the Whitaker Scholarship program and Institute of International Education (IIE-Fulbright). The Whitaker International Program sends emerging leaders in U.S. biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) overseas to undertake a self-designed project that will enhance their careers within the field. The goal of the program is to assist the development of professional leaders who are not only superb scientists, but who also will advance the profession through an international outlook. Along with supporting grant projects in an academic setting, the Whitaker International Program encourages grantees to engage in policy work and propose projects in an industry setting. Grants are available for: undergraduates, graduates, post-docs, faculty, and professionals. All UT students, faculty and staff are invited to attend. Please RSVP for one of the sessions by registering at http://onsf.wufoo.com/forms/onsf-information-sessions-and-workshops-utk/.
