USF launched the Fellowship in 2015 to honor President Kalam, who visited the university in 2012. Aimed at Indian students wanting to pursue a PhD in specified Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs, the Fellowship offers a 4-year tuition waiver as well as a stipend of $18,000 per year.

Kalam Postgraduate Fellowship, and we welcome and anticipate her contributions to the USF Department of Cell Biology, Microbiology and Molecular Biology,” said Dr. Roger Brindley, USF System Vice President of USF World as he remarks, “Her exceptional academic credentials and passion for research exemplifies all that embodies a Kalam Fellow.”
