Genomics Institute Double Helix (GIDH) Fellowship

The UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute Double Helix (GIDH) Fellowship is a merit-based fellowship established in 2021. It is awarded to outstanding first-year UCSC graduate students who are committed to genomics research and who will contribute to enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in genomics research.

Candidates are selected from applicants to the UCSC Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, which includes four interdisciplinary training tracks (Biomolecular Engineering & Bioinformatics; Chemical Biology, Biochemistry & Biophysics; Microbial Biology & Pathogenesis; and Molecular, Cell & Developmental Biology).

The GIDH award money, which came from donor gift funds, is intended to supplement the student’s offer package for costs such as fees and tuition.
