MICDE Fellowships

Since 2014, MICDE has offered top-off fellowships to current and prospective students whose research project involves the use and advancement of scientific computing techniques and practices. These fellowships, which carry a $4,000 stipend, are meant to augment other sources of funding and are available to students in both the Ph.D in Scientific Computing and the Graduate Certificate Program in Computational Discovery and Engineering. Fellows may use the funds to attend a conference, buy a computer, or any other advisor-approved activity that will enhance her/his graduate experience. We also ask that Fellows to attend the MICDE seminar series and to present a poster at the MICDE Annual Symposium.
