Opportunities ● Whitaker Fellowships for Undergraduates

As an addition to the opportunities currently available under the Whitaker International Program, the Institute of International Education (IIE) has launched a new scholarship program for undergraduate students in biomedical engineering. The Whitaker Undergraduate Scholarship Program is designed for second, third and fourth year biomedical engineering students from U.S. institutions to study biomedical engineering abroad for one semester or an academic year.


  • To diversify the existing Whitaker International Program to include opportunities for undergraduates in BME
  • To increase the number of undergraduates in BME who go abroad
  • To provide early in their educations the opportunity to see BME from an international perspective
  • To develop students to become future leaders in BME
