Reproductive Biomedicine Fellowships

Population Council

Program Summary

The Population Council, an independent nonprofit international organization, offers fellowships to individuals who desire advanced study in the physiology and biochemistry of the reproduction to train in the laboratories of its Center for Biomedical Research located on the campus of Rockefeller University. Awards for full-time research training and study are initially made for one year, with the possibility of a one-year renewal.

Targeted Fields

Physiology and biochemistry of reproduction.


Candidates must have successfully completed an advanced degree - M.D., Ph.D., or equivalent - and be proficient in English. Applications may be made in anticipation of receiving the doctoral degree, but the fellowship cannot begin until after the degree has been awarded. Fellowships are open to individuals of all countries. If the applicant is other than a United States citizen and enters this country on a Population Council-sponsored J-1 visa, s/he must have a strong commitment to return to his/her own country upon completion of the fellowship.


Fellowships can begin any time during the year. The basic stipend is $30,000 per year for a candidate having just completed a doctoral degree. There are increments commensurate with experience.
