Graduate Fellowships in Science and Engineering

Fields of Study: Though the fields supported can vary annually depending on employer needs, in general NPSC covers the following: Astronomy, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Materials Science, Mathematical Sciences, Physics, and their subdisciplines, and related engineering fields: Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Mechanical. Location or Type of Institution: Any participating NPSC Member University or College Eligibility: NPSC welcomes applications from any qualified U.S. citizen who has the ability to pursue graduate work at an NPSC member institution. Applicants at any stage of their graduate program may apply, as long as they will be available to accept two summers of paid internship. Those who already possess a doctoral degree are ineligible. Employers may nominate NPSC fellows directly, obviating the selection process. These fellows may enroll for either a Master's or a PhD degree.

Army Research Laboratory Postdoctoral Flwp Program

Before appointment, each participant must present evidence of having received a Ph.D., Sc.D., or other earned research doctoral degree recognized in U.S. academic circles as equivalent to a Ph.D. Fellows are selected based on their overall qualifications and technical proposal addressing specific needs defined by ARL. The selected participants will work in a unique Army laboratory environment, while interacting with senior ARL scientists and engineers. ASEE will hold reviews of applicants to the Fellowship Program on a continual basis. Fellowships are awarded for one year, however, Fellows may participate for a second and third year. Applicants are advised to plan their research programs to confirm to a one year appointment. Most opportunities for research at ARL Directorates are open to citizens of the U.S. and to legal permanent residents. However, in some Directorates, certain opportunities for research are open only to U.S. citizens. Although opportunities are limited to unclassified research, all guest investigators, including Postdoctoral Fellows, are subject to Army regulations governing visiting scientists. ARL cannot sponsor applicants for its Research Associateship programs who are citizens of countries whose policies have been determined to be inimical to U.S. interests. Prospective non-U.S. applicants who are uncertain of their eligibility are advised to contact the Associateship Programs Office at ARL before submitting a formal application.

Father James B. Macelwane Award in Meteorology

The purpose of the Father James B. Macelwane Annual Awards in Meteorology is to stimulate interest in meteorology among college students through the submission of original student papers concerned with an aspect of the atmospheric sciences. The student must be enrolled as an undergraduate at the time the paper is written, and no more than two students from any one institution may enter in any one contest.

AMS Graduate Fellowship in the History of Science

The American Meteorological Society is pleased to invite applications for a graduate fellowship in the history of science, to be awarded to a student wishing to complete a dissertation on the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences. The award carries a $15000 stipend and will support one year of dissertation research. Fellowships cannot be deferred and must be used for the year awarded, but can be used to support research at a location away from the student's institution provided the plan is approved by the student's thesis advisor. The goal of the graduate fellowship is to generate a dissertation topic in the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences, and to foster close working relations between historians and scientists. An effort will be made to place the student into a mentoring relationship with an AMS member at an appropriate institution.
