On April 3rd, 2018, the Graduate Biochemistry Student Association (gBSA) hosted the third event of the Navigating Graduate School Lunch Hour Series.
At the “Applying for Fellowships” event, graduate students attended a series of presentations outlining the application process for UCLA-wide and nation-wide fellowships. Presenters for the event included students and faculty from the UCLA Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry – Professor Steven Clarke, Jeong Hoon Ko (Maynard group), and David Boyer (Eisenberg group). Fellowships discussed during the event included the UCLA Cellular and Molecular Biology (CMB) training program, the UCLA Chemistry and Biology Interface (CBI) training program, and the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).

This lunch hour series is scheduled to run throughout Spring quarter. Future topics include teaching and mentorship, and mental health in graduate school. gBSA provides lunch for individuals who RSVP. Organizers of the event include Biochemistry Molecular Structural Biology (BMSB) graduate students Xiaofei (Fay) Lin, Joseph Ong, and Joanna Marshall.
