Congratulations to our 2012 Chicago Biomedical Consortium Scholars!
Inaugurated in 2010, the CBC scholars program invites member universities to nominate up to three outstanding graduate students each year. Each CBC scholar receives a grant of $5,000 per year for up to two years for academic purposes such as travel to conferences. The purpose of the program is to develop a leadership forum for students from the CBC universities (Northwestern University, University of Illinois at Chicago, and University of Chicago) to advance the CBC mission of fostering collaboration and excellence.
