Graduate and Post-doctoral Fellowships

Proceeds from this endowment would provide a full stipend and tuition for a Physics graduate student or a stipend and research start-up assistance to support a post-doctoral fellow. Because so many graduate students are recruited according to the Department's broad research strengths, this endowment will enable the Department to recruit talented young scientists to pursue research work in specific, targeted areas of physics. An endowment of $750,000 to $1 million will provide flexibility for the student and strengthen the Department's ability to recruit and retain top-notch scientists.
