The purpose of the Broshy Graduate Fellowship in Medical Engineering and Science is to support the research and education of an exceptional graduate student whose work focuses on a novel, interdisciplinary project that has a good likelihood of being translated into an innovative commercial product and/or service that positively impacts health care outcomes and cost. The Broshy Fellow will receive $50,000 for one year toward support of her/his stipend and tuition, and research. Any MIT graduate student in good standing, pursuing either a Masters or a Doctoral degree, and who has completed at least one year of study at MIT is eligible. Photo by Mer Chau.
