Graduate Student Launch Funding

Graduate Student Launch Funding: Summer 2021

The Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative (ND-ECI) is pleased to offer summer stipend support for NEW incoming graduate students that would like to jumpstart their Notre Dame training during Summer 2021.  The graduate stipends, based on their matriculating department, will be supported by ND-ECI. Duration of summer funding can be for one or two months, and depends on our applicant pools and needs; we hope to support as many students as we can.  The goal of these fellowships is t­­­­­o help support a strong cohort of new graduate students beginning their studies at Notre Dame during this unusual year.  As part of the effort to build a lasting relationship between ND-ECI and these students, we will engage with them through welcoming summer activities, where they will have the opportunity to interact with other ND-ECI related students, postdocs, staff and faculty.  

Eligibility: All incoming graduate students for fall 2021 who are entering into a laboratory of an ND-ECI affiliated faculty member.  Available start dates are June 16, 2021 (2 months funding) or July 16, 2021 (1 month funding).

How to Apply: The faculty member should complete this very short Application Form by Thursday May 13th, 2021.  You will receive word regarding decisions before the end of finals week.
