WPI is pleased to announce the call for the 2017 Presidential Fellows.
The objective of the program is to offer doctoral fellowships to underrepresented women and minority students working in science, technology, engineering, math, or business disciplines. Presidential Fellows will receive a $31,200 stipend for 12 months, in addition to full tuition. Through their doctoral work, fellows will elevate the research profile of the university and find new ways to solve some of the biggest challenges of our time.
WPI’s fundamental and applied research is addressing vital societal problems and technological challenges and producing innovations and insights that are helping build a better world.
To be considered for a Presidential Fellowship, you must apply to a WPI PhD program by January 1, 2018. After you have submitted your application, please send an email with "Presidential Fellowship" as the subject line to email@example.com and we will forward your application to the review committee.
