|ND EPSCoR doctoral dissertation assistantships available|
ND EPSCoR is accepting proposals for doctoral dissertation assistantships. They are designed to increase the completion rate of Ph.D. students enrolled in the science, engineering, and mathematics disciplines at North Dakota's two research-intensive universities, and to increase the number of competitive proposals submitted to the National Science Foundation.
Applications must be made by the students with supplemental information provided by their advisors, along with endorsement from their graduate program director and department chair. Successful applicants will have research programs that are eligible for funding from the science, engineering, and mathematics research directorates at the National Science Foundation. The faculty advisors are required to submit a proposal to one of the research directorates at the National Science Foundation during the term of the assistantship. Student eligibility requires dissertation topics that are in areas qualified for funding from the science, engineering and mathematics research directorates in the National Science Foundation, and who have been advanced to candidacy for the Ph.D. by the graduate dean at the time of application are eligible.
Applications are due at noon Wednesday, June 6. The RFP is available at www.ndepscor.nodak.edu. Questions may be directed to Gary Johnson, ND EPSCoR co-project director, at 777-2492 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
