REMINDER: MICDE fellowships available — March 27 deadline

By | Educational, Events, Funding Opportunities

Applications are now being accepted for Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery and Engineering (MICDE) Fellowships for the 2015-2016 academic year. Applicants should be graduate students enrolled in either the CDE certificate program, or the Ph.D. program in Scientific Computing. Students not yet enrolled in one of those programs but planning on doing so may simultaneously submit program and fellowship applications.

Fellows will receive a $4,000 research fund that can be used to attend a conference, to buy a computer, or for any other advisor-approved activity that enhances the Fellow’s graduate experience.  We also ask that Fellows present a poster at the MICDE Symposium in Fall 2015.

Interested students should download and complete the application form, have it signed by their advisor, and submit it with a one-page resume to MICDE-apps@umich.edu. The due date for applications is March 27, 2015.
