Carnegie Mellon University

Doctoral Fellowship Program

The Steinbrenner Institute Doctoral Fellowship program has been established to provide support to highly qualified, second-year doctoral students across all 7 colleges at Carnegie Mellon University 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 four fellowships will be granted per academic year for one full year of doctoral 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, and are encouraged to present at subsequent poster sessions
  • Fellowship applicants much be exceptional CMU students entering their second year of PhD studies and must be involved in an ongoing research project

The purpose of the Steinbrenner Institute Doctoral Fellowship is to provide support for PhD students engaged in cutting edge environmental research for which traditional funding may not be available.
