Diversity Efforts Awarded

Macarena Aloi, a doctoral student in pathology, has been selected for the prestigious Gilliam Fellowship for Advanced Study, given out by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

The fellowships provide full support to promising doctoral students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. Each fellow will receive an annual award totaling $46,000, which includes a stipend, a training allowance, and an institutional allowance, for up to three years.

“The Gilliam Fellows are outstanding young scientists who have expressed a clear commitment to advancing diversity among scientists,” said David Asai, senior director of science education.
