One-year, competitive, non-renewable fellowships are available for students participating in the Materials Science and Engineering doctoral program. Students need not win one of the fellowships to pursue the Materials Science and Engineering degree. The fellowship application is joint between the student and the faculty advisor. Interested students must consult with his or her faculty advisor before applying. The Executive Committee will make all decisions regarding funding of the Materials Science and Engineering fellowships.  Preference for these fellowships will be given to students with co-advisors across disciplines.

The following materials are requested when submitting a proposal for a Materials Science and Engineering fellowship:

  1. Two-page research proposal from the faculty advisor
  2. One-page statement of interest in materials science and engineering from the student
  3. Student's CV
  4. One-page letter of support from the faculty advisor

Faculty interested in submitting a fellowship proposal should contact Derek Lake, NDnano Associate Director, for full details on the fellowship proposal process.

Funding for these fellowships is provided by the College of Engineering, College of Science, and the following Notre Dame Research units: Advanced Diagnostics & Therapeutics, Harper Cancer Research Institute, Center for Sustainable Energy at Notre Dame (ND Energy), and Notre Dame Nanoscience and Technology (NDnano).
