Faculty who wish to develop a new research direction are invited to apply for the fellowship, which will provide one graduate student stipend for one year. The proposed interdisciplinary research should lead to a dissertation with a substantial materials focus. These fellowships are nonrenewable. Two or more faculty are expected to mentor the student during the fellowship, and an external proposal is expected to be submitted to continue the research.

The fellowships application period is open mid-December to June 1.

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

For more information, contact Derek Lake, NDnano Associate Director.
