Brief Description of Research ProjectThe UD graduate fellowship is awarded to a student pursuing a master's or PhD degrees in areas of relevance to the CIAMTIS goals and strategic thrusts. Applicants may be either new students to the University of Delaware or continuing students. New students must be nominated by a faculty member willing to advise the student. Continuing students may be self-nominated or nominated by their advisors. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. Fellowships are awarded on the basis of academic qualifications, and relevance to the CIAMTIS theme and goals. The Fellowship covers graduate school tuition, pays a monthly stipend for 12 months ($2,222/ month for doctoral students and $2,111 for master’s students in 2018-2019), and includes a $1000 allowance for travel and supplies and a $1000 allowance for computing. Fellowship recipients are required to participate in the activities of the center, conduct research in a relevant area, and present a brown bag presentation on their work; however, the fellowships do not directly support specific projects.
