Graduate Research Opportunities

Merit-based Graduate Fellowships available


All incoming (2021-2022) 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 2021. 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 April 15, 2021: (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) 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.
