David Lopatie Fellows

The David Lopatie Fellowship is a two-year program designed for the top cadre of students in the Feinberg Graduate School’s MSc program. The best applicants to the MSc program are selected by the Chairs of the Boards of Studies and recommended to the school’s Dean, who selects the final list of the David Lopatie Fellows for the next academic year.

  • Permission for an early transfer from the MSc program to the direct PhD track (if desired), at the beginning of the second year.
