Stanley Behrens Fellows in Medicine

Phlianthropist Stanley Behrens created the Stanley Behrens Fellows in Medicine program to support basic science graduate research. The Stanley Behrens Fellows in Medicine Program is intended to recognize and support one or more outstanding UC Irvine School of Medicine doctoral students engaged in novel translational research with the potential to advance human well-being or otherwise make a significant impact in the community.

"Research is one of the strong points of America," said philanthropist Stanley Behrens, who established the fellowship program in spring 2016 through the Stanley Behrens Family Foundation. "And, it’s happening right here at UCI. I felt it was important to contribute to that cutting edge research."

Students are nominated by the department with which they are affiliated. Nomination criteria include academic excellence, scientific promise, scholarly and professional potential, community and university service.

The fellowship review committee includes members of the Behrens Family Foundation and UC Irvine School of Medicine faculty. Together, committee members select the most exceptional candidates.
