Fellowship Program

Are you seeking funding for a PhD in cellular agriculture?


The New Harvest Fellowship Program provides funding for doctoral (PhD) students pursuing basic scientific research in cellular agriculture. Interested students should begin by finding a principal investigator (P.I.) with the requisite expertise who is interested in working with them. Next, prospective students will design and submit a five to six page research proposal in partnership with their P.I.

As openness in research is a core value for New Harvest, Fellows are expected to demonstrate a commitment to openness throughout the duration of their term - ensuring that their work remains as accessible as possible, and that findings are published in a peer-reviewed open access journal.

Once accepted, all New Harvest Research Fellows will be expected to participate in weekly remote group meetings and to attend fellowship retreats with the New Harvest staff every six months. Research Fellows may also be asked to participate in New Harvest’s annual cellular agriculture conference by speaking or presenting a research poster.

Fellowship program application deadlines fall on November 15 and April 15 of each year.

The New Harvest Fellowship Program was established in 2015.
