The Hertz Fellowship provides PhD fellowships to individuals studying in the applied physical and biological sciences, mathematics, and engineering, at over 40 participating universities. Applicants are required to direct their work toward understanding and solving major, near-term problems facing society.
Finalists for the Hertz Fellowship can apply for the additional Hertz Fellowship in Global Health and Development, which expands the Hertz Fellowship experience to include two summer internships at the Gates Foundation. The goal is to provide fellows with hands-on opportunities to learn about global health and development issues and inspire them to broaden their contribution to society.
