Transition Fellowship Submission Guidelines


Applicants, please follow these instructions and note that items 2, and 3 should be gathered prior to the application process, each as a single PDF file (2 PDF files: 1. Letter of application, 2. Transcripts). Note that your faculty recommender MUST submit a confidential letter (in PDF format) by the application deadline (see section 2). When applying (see details on process below), students will be prompted to submit each of their 2 items as separate PDF files (one file per item).
The following are required for a complete application:

  • A completed Wyoming INBRE application cover sheet (questionnaire completed during the online application process).

  • A letter of application including a description of the candidate’s INBRE-supported and other research experiences; a description of the candidate’s academic and career goals that highlights his/her commitment to a career in biomedicine/allied health sciences; and a statement of commitment to completing the INBRE research experience. The letter should be no more than two pages DOUBLE-spaced yet it should be comprehensive.  This letter of application should be saved as a PDF file for submission during the online application process.

  • A complete undergraduate transcript record. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable.  All transcript files (if different school transcripts are provided) should be gathered in a single PDF file that should be submitted during the online application process.

  • A letter of recommendation from an INBRE collaborator faculty (see list of faculty collaborators below). This letter must be submitted by the faculty recommender (NOT by the fellowship applicant) as a PDF file. Instructions for this letter and a submission link are provided bellow.



Faculty, please note that this letter of recommendation is a critical component of the student’s fellowship application. Therefore, it should be well crafted and should outline the qualities of the candidate that makes him/her best suited for this fellowship award.
If recommending several student candidates for this fellowship, you must submit each letter of recommendation separately (one submission per student) through the link provided below.
The letter of recommendation must be official (institution’s letterhead and signature of faculty should be included; NO EMAIL). Submission of these letters of recommendation is restricted to a PDF format.


The Wyoming INBRE Transition fellowship program is highly competitive and focuses on transition students who wish to have a career in biomedicine/allied health sciences. Materials such as the letter of application written and submitted by the applicant, and the recommendation letter from the INBRE collaborator/faculty, are both critical elements of these applications used to determine fellowship awardee selection. Timely submissions are paramount (late applications are not accepted) and incomplete submissions will be disregarded. It is the responsibility of the applicant to gather ALL application materials on time.     


  • After initial screening of applications based on the quality of the application materials (emphasis on letter of application and letter of recommendation), selected individuals may be required to give a brief presentation on their research experience and participate in an interview with the selection committee before final selection of recipients.
  • If you have any questions about this fellowship program, please contact the INBRE collaborators on your campus (see list below) or Dr. Florence Teulé-Finley, Wyoming INBRE Program Coordinator (
