Steinbrenner Graduate Research Fellowship Program
The Steinbrenner Graduate Fellowship program has been established to provide support to highly qualified, second-year graduate students across all 7 colleges at Carnegie Mellon who are involved in environmentally-focused, interdisciplinary research projects on topics aligned with the strategic focus areas of the Steinbrenner Institute. The two strategic focus areas are a) energy transition strategies and b) urban infrastructure and sustainable cities.
About the Fellowship:
- Proposals should be submitted by a faculty advisor on behalf of their advisee
- Up to five fellowships will be granted per academic year (The 2013-2014 fellowship amount was $37,000 to be applied towards recipient tuition)
- Students receiving support will be required to present a poster at the annual Steinbrenner Institute Environmental Research Poster Session, held during the spring semester of each year
- Fellowship applicants much be exceptional Carnegie Mellon students entering their second year of PhD studies and must be involved in an ongoing research project
The purpose of the Steinbrenner Graduate Research Fellowship is to provide support for PhD students engaged in cutting edge environmental research for which traditional funding may not be available
