The US Department of Energy Office of Science has awarded graduate fellowships to two University students.
Colin Gurganus, a PhD student in atmospheric science, and Carley Kratz, who is earning her doctorate in forest science, are among the 150 fellows nationwide selected by the DOE from among 3,300 applicants. They will each receive $50,500 per year for up to three years to support tuition, living expenses, research materials and travel to conferences or to DOE scientific facilities.
“Competition for the DOE fellowships is intense; applicants are drawn from the nation’s finest universities,” said David Reed, vice president for research. “The fact that two of our students were selected speaks both to the excellence of Michigan Tech’s research program and to the students’ outstanding qualifications, as well as their dedication and enthusiasm. I congratulate them both.”
The new DOE fellowship program is designed to strengthen the nation’s scientific workforce by supporting young students during the formative years of their research.
