Prospective Students

‎NanoBioNYC is an interdisciplinary program that provides training and professional ‎‎development support to Ph.D. students conducting research in bio-nanoscience. Fellows ‎‎and scholars benefit from research mentorship, technical training certifications,‎‎ professional development workshops, internship opportunities, student awards, and ‎more.‎

We are committed to expanding the opportunities in STEM to people of all racial, ethnic, geographic and socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, and to persons with disabilities. We especially encourage applications from groups that are underrepresented in US scientific research based on the following criteria: (1) race and ethnicity (African American, Hispanic, American Indian, Alaska or Hawaii Native, other Pacific Islanders); (2) economic and/or educational disadvantage; (3) disability status; (4) women in Engineering or Physics.
