Welcome To Penn FERBS!

Our Mission

The retention and holistic development of students traditionally under-represented in the biological sciences.

Our Strategy

Through the FERBS fellowship program we strive to support each fellow during their time at Penn. Through early exposure to research with structured mentorship and training, financial support, career development, and community engagement, we are focused on providing the opportunity and support for our exceptional and high performing students to succeed in STEM.
