Human Genetics Scholars Initiative Community

The Human Genetics Scholars Initiative (HGSI) is a 5-year program designed to foster support for early-career researchers from underrepresented groups. Guided by an Advisory Group of volunteers and two external advisors with specific interest in STEM diversity.

  • Eight scholars are selected annually for an intensive two-year program: During those two years, they receive complimentary Annual Meeting travel support and registration, a designated mentor, and a $1,000 in enrichment funds for approved professional development activities of their choosing.
  • All scholars and remaining applicants are invited to participate in year-round virtual discussions and learning sessions on various topics; that curriculum is being developed by the Advisory Group.
