Financial support is available for qualified students on
a competitive basis in the form of
CS&E Graduate Fellowships. In addition to fulfilling the general
requirements for admission to the program, applicants must submit a
research proposal as detailed in the Appendix. Compatibility of
the students with the goals and research interests of the faculty
and industrial and national-laboratory CS&E Program affiliates
will be a strong factor in the evaluation process.
Awards are made initially for a period of one year. Yearly renewals
for the duration of candidacy are possible, based upon a review
of student progress in coursework or dissertation research.
A grade average of B or better must be maintained
in CS&E courses. Fellowships can be extended for up to four
years for students who remain in good academic standing in
the CS&E Program and in the home department requirements.
In the first two years of the program, the home department will
have primary input in judging the standing of participating students.
In the latter two years and during any earlier period in which
a student enrolls in six or more hours of research credits,
the advisor and the research mentor will add their inputs.
Tuition fees are not covered by the award. Customarily, out-of-state
tuition and matriculation fee waivers are obtained through home
departments. If a student terminates candidacy before the end of a
fellowship year, the stipend will be prorated and terminated.
Recipients of CS&E fellowships may not concurrently hold any other
form of support from the university, unless a cost sharing agreement
is reached. CS&E Program fellows may not hold another for-profit-job.
Consistent with this requirement, a participating department may not
require the student with a fellowship to teach or perform duties not
directly related to his education and research.
