Application Deadline 4/20 for Tripathy Summer Graduate Fellowship

By Michele Vercellin

The Tripathy Endowed Memorial Summer Graduate Fellowship will be awarded to one or two Ph.D candidate(s) in his/her final year of research in the broad areas of material science and polymer science at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. This award is presented in memory of the late Prof. Sukant Tripathy, director of the Center for Advanced Materials, and former Provost of UMass Lowell. The Fellowship stipend, in the amount of $6,500, is intended to support the student's research conducted during the summer months (May 15 - August 31, 2014).

Tripathy was an internationally recognized leading scientist in materials science. It is hoped that Tripathy Fellows will be motivated to similarly outstanding professional careers.

All application materials must be submitted by April 20 to the Dean of Sciences Office, Olney 524. The awardee(s) will be announced by May 13, 2014. Applications and further information regarding qualifications, application and selection processes are available on the Tripathy Fellowship website.
