NanoBioNYC Student Awards

A fundraising campaign to provide monetary awards to diverse and deserving students of the NanoBioNYC Program who excel in their research at the Graduate Center

A fundraising campaign for Graduate Center, CUNY

The NanoBioNYC is a new Ph.D. traineeship program focused on the development of groundbreaking technology to address urgent issues relating to human health and a sustainable future. The program prepares a student body that is exceptionally talented and as diverse as NYC, with many of these scholars being first-generation and underrepresented students in STEM, to become tomorrow’s leaders. The program supports graduate students across the five boroughs with its focal point at the state-of-the-art Advanced Science Research Center.

We are raising funds to create awards to recognize and celebrate these students’ achievements. Fellows and scholars with outstanding research will receive monetary awards for excelling in their respective fields.

Six awards will be given to students during an evening ceremony with CUNY students and faculty.
