About Us


The Schmidt Science Fellows, in partnership with the Rhodes Trust, seeks to create a new generation of scientific leaders. Our vision is to give the world’s best aspiring scientific minds a broader perspective, the ability to engage in an interdisciplinary way, and the opportunity to make a lasting impact on society.  Through a combination of workshops at some of the world’s leading universities, individualized mentoring, and a special postdoctoral study in a field different from one’s existing expertise, Fellows are given the tools necessary to solve the world’s most pressing problems and advance scientific discovery.
