Up to 2 years of support for 3-5 new Ph.D. students

Cohort Grants will provide support to established interdisciplinary research initiatives by sponsoring cohorts of Ph.D. students recruited to conduct interconnected and innovative research. This program is intended to build interactive graduate student-faculty teams that will pursue extramural funding. Cohorts may be composed of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 newly enrolled students for their first two years of a CAS or CAS-affiliated doctoral program. Master’s-level students are not funded through this program.

Cohort Grants for 2019/2020 will support the 3-5 newly enrolled Ph.D. students by providing ½-time graduate assistantships (Grade 12) plus GIA for 2 semesters/year, beginning Fall semester 2019 and ending Spring semester 2021. A plan for summer stipend support and continuation of stipend and tuition funding after the two years for these new Ph.D. students is required.
