How to Apply

All application materials including the online NBBTP Fellowship Application, NBBTP Fellowship Reference Form, Official Transcripts from the institution of the highest degree earned, and any optional supplemental material are due by close of business on July 6, 2015 for the Class of Fellows beginning January 5, 2016. Each applicant must submit a completed application, including a resume or CV. Materials that arrive after July 6th, 2015 may not be considered on an applicant's behalf. 


During the NBBTP application review process, the NBBTP Selection Committee rates and ranks NBBTP applicants using a three-phase, structured assessment process. The first phase is based on the completed application, references, essay, official transcripts and optional supplemental material. After this initial review process, quarter-finalists are invited to phone-interview with members of the Selection Committee. Upon successful completion of the phone interview, semi-finalists are invited to participate in two days of personal interviews on-site at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. Fellowship offers are conditional, pending verification of authenticity of application materials, official transcripts, and the applicant's ability to meet Federal guidelines for working with select agents.

Questions about the NBBTP Fellowship and/or Professional Development and Certificate programs are happily answered via or by calling 678-781-5241.
