The Graduate College is pleased to offer Clean Energy Education Fellowships to support Illinois graduate students dedicated to researching and promoting clean energy literacy. This is a new fellowship program, launched in conjunction with the National Clean Energy Education Workshop held in October 2011 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Academic year awards cover up to two years of study at the doctoral level starting August 2012. Up to five awards will be made.
The stipend is $20,000. In addition, Fellows will receive at least $5,000 in summer support from their graduate program (either assistantship or fellowship for the period May 16-August 15). The fellowship includes a waiver of full tuition, service fee, AFMA fee, and Library fee. In addition, the University provides payment of the health service fee, basic dental and vision coverage, and partial payment of the graduate student health insurance fee per semester. Fellows will be expected to participate in annual events sponsored by campus for Clean Energy Education Fellows, including possible poster presentations or symposia.
Students must be nominated by their departments. Departments may nominate either current students or incoming students, but are limited to two nominations.
