The Cell and Molecular Biology faculty at the University of Virginia provides a comprehensive graduate training program in modern cell and molecular biological sciences. It is the purpose of the program to provide the widest possible choice of mentors, and hence, research areas, while offering an individually-tailored academic program for each graduate student.
We believe that the best biological scientists are those who possess a broad knowledge of cell and molecular biology, as well as a thorough understanding of their own particular research area.
The Cell and Molecular Biology program capitalizes on the expertise and resources of a large, diverse, and excellent faculty composed of more than ninety members from eight basic science departments and programs in the university.
From the website:This scholarship is for first-, second- and third-year College students who have outstanding academic achievement and a record of outstanding service to others

The Echols Scholars Program is predicated upon the Jeffersonian ideal of freedom of inquiry and the development of critical thought. It offers special opportunities to those undergraduates in the College of Arts & Sciences who are its most avid learners.
