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 approved activity that will enhance her/his graduate experience. We also ask Fellows to attend the MICDE seminar series and to present a poster at the MICDE Annual Symposium.

Clare Boothe Luce Fellowships

The University of Michigan has been awarded a Clare Boothe Luce grant to fund the first 3 years of the PhD program of women enrolling in the PhD in Scientific Computing. The CBL program will fund two Ph.D. students, one in the College of Engineering, and one in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts, who will start a PhD program in Fall 2019 at the University of Michigan in one of the selected departments, and are looking into applying scientific computing, computational sciences and algorithms in their research.
