  • Medical and Health sciences.
  • Biological, Physical or Earth sciences.
  • Social and Behavioral sciences.
  • Computational sciences and Mathematics.
  • Engineering disciplines (applicants with a MS in engineering and three years of professional experience also qualify).

The Revelle fellowship is open to applicants with a minimum of three years of professional experience beyond their doctoral degree (not including postdoc positions), or six years of professional engineering experience for applicants with an MS in engineering.
