Boston Scientific gives $500K for biomedical engineering fellowships

The University has received a gift of $500,000 from Boston Scientific Corporation to fund the creation of the Boston Scientific Corporation Biomedical Engineering Fellowship Fund. The fund will help support new full-time biomedical engineering graduate students during their first semester.

The contribution, which will be spread over five years, is a lead gift in a campaign to create an endowment designed to ultimately support the entire class of first-year biomedical engineering graduate students each fall.

"Boston Scientific is committed to aiding in the development of tomorrow's scientists, engineers and mathematicians" said Fred Colen, executive vice president and CEO of Boston Scientific. "These same students might some day develop medical technologies that could help save or improve the lives of patients around the world."
