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.

In addition to the prestige of being awarded a special status of excellence, David Lopatie fellows receive the following benefits and privileges, as well as the regular benefits received by all of the MSc students:

  • Permission for an early transfer from the MSc program to the direct PhD track (if desired), which entitles you to begin studies toward a PhD degree at the beginning of your second year. Early transfer to the direct PhD track receives approval provided that all of the necessary academic requirements have been fulfilled.
  • Increased scholarship that is equal to the scholarship granted to first-year PhD students, for those who opt to transfer to the direct PhD track during the second year of studies. Scond-year PhD fellowship is possible only after the submission of a PhD Research Proposal.
  • Personal travel allowance for scientific meetings, workshops, and schools, including academic institutions and conventions overseas, in an amount equal to half of the travel allowance granted to the PhD students at the Feinberg Graduate School.
