SOM Foundation – 2019 Structural Engineering Research Fellowship

The Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) Foundation is pleased to call for nominations for the 2019 Structural Engineering Research Fellowship. This $20,000 independent fellowship enables a student to conduct research and travel to select cities to study how structures can positively respond to humanizing density in our cities. It is the hope of the Foundation that the Fellow will in turn influence the practice and teaching of structural engineering in the future.

Candidate must be graduating with a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree or Ph.D. in civil or architectural engineering with a specialization in structural engineering of buildings and bridges from a U.S. school between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019 and must intend to enter the professional practice of structural engineering. Candidate must be nominated by his/her dean or department chair. U.S. citizenship is not required.

Dear Advisers and Colleagues,

Please let students in social science and STEM fields know about the upcoming application cycle and information sessions for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP). NSF GRFP is one of the premier opportunities to fund graduate study, providing 3 years of funding which includes a $34,000 annual stipend and full cost of tuition/fees. Current undergrads and bachelor’s alumni planning for graduate study, as well as current graduate students may be eligible to apply. Further details and a forward-able message are below. Please share widely!

Although the name may suggest that only STEM students are eligible, the list of eligible fields is quite diverse. This is not the complete list of eligible fields, but just some examples (see the complete list here.)
