University of Dayton Sustainability graduate fellowships The Hanley Sustainability Institute (HSI) at the University of Dayton continues to support graduate fellowships in interdisciplinary sustainability research for the 2023-2024 academic year. Applications are invited for the four research projects listed below and described in more detail at the program webpage:
- The impact of climate change on the sustainability of water resources in the Water Tower of Africa (WTA), Ethiopia
- Renewable feedstock nanocomposites for water purification
- Thermal 3D model reconstruction for smart inspection of building and infrastructure systems
- Watershed health in the Miami Valley: Using fish communities to assess acute and chronic environmental stress
Fellows are expected to dedicate 10 hours per week to support their faculty-led research project and another 10 hours per week to support HSI's wider programming in sustainability. They'll receive a 9-month stipend of $18,000 plus tuition support covering a typical course load for graduate students. Fellowships are awarded on a one-year basis but can be renewed for one additional year provided that the student is succeeding across their various responsibilities. To apply, prospective fellows should upload their cover letter, CV, and unofficial transcripts through the online application form by January 31st, 2023. Fellowship recipients must also apply (separately) and be accepted to the UD graduate program of their choice.
