Welcome Aboard CBC Scholars Class of 2010!

Chicago Biomedical Consortium (CBC) is pleased to announce the inaugural class of CBC Scholars. Each CBC University was invited to nominate up to three outstanding advanced graduate students to participate in the new CBC Scholars Program. The class of 2010 will consist of eight members (listed below) each to receive a grant of $5,000 per year for up to two years to be used for academically related purposes such as travel to conferences.

The CBC Scholar Program intends to develop a leadership forum for students from the CBC Universities to advance the CBC mission of fostering collaboration and excellence. The first gathering of the CBC Scholars took place on January 27, 2010.
