Merit-based Graduate Fellowships

All incoming (2022-2023) ASRC-advised doctoral students are eligible to compete for one-year merit-based ASRC Graduate Fellowships that carry a full tuition waiver and stipend.

The University at Albany´s Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) is pleased to announce merit-based first-year fellowships for new ASRC-advised doctoral students. A first-year fellowship includes full tuition (9 credits per semester) and a research assistantship stipend for a 12-month period beginning in late August 2022. Pending satisfactory academic performance, successful applicants can expect comparable support levels in subsequent years. All first-year doctoral students, domestic and international, interested in being advised or co-advised by an ASRC faculty member are eligible to apply. To receive full consideration for the fellowship, applicants must submit by January 31, 2022: (1) an application for admission to the appropriate University at Albany Doctoral Program, and (2) a letter requesting fellowship consideration to the ASRC Graduate Fellowship Committee, c/o Dr. Fangqun Yu, [email protected]. The letter of request should be a 1 page "cover letter" alerting the committee of the applicant’s research interests and the potential ASRC advisor(s) should also be identified. Applicants are strongly encouraged to coordinate their application with a faculty member at ASRC prior to submission. Late applications may be considered under special circumstances.

Opportunities for individuals from underrepresented groups

We encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to contact faculty members to discuss research opportunities. In addition to the opportunities below, other opportunities might exist through university or external diversity fellowship programs that will allow you to work with a faculty member to craft a unique research project. You can either e-mail individual faculty members with whom you are interested in working, or contact Sara Lance ([email protected]), Chair of ASRC's Diversity and Inclusion Committee, for more information.
