We are seeking high quality, motivated individuals for our Natural Resources Resilience Graduate Education Initiative via a set of prestigious fellowships. All fellowships provide competitive stipends. The goal of this initiative is to educate outstanding and diverse graduate students in the area of forest and agricultural sustainability and resilience. Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are highly encouraged.
The most competitive applicants are awarded the College of Agriculture, Purdue University Graduate School, and Department of Forestry & Natural Resources funding. The Department of Forestry and Natural Resources partners with the College of Agriculture and Purdue Graduate School funding sources to cover the stipend, tuition, and 80% of the Purdue medical insurance premium for a period of two years for MS students and 3-4 years for Ph.D. students, depending on the requirements for the funding source. Students who have earned a minimum cumulative GPAs of 3.2/4.0 at the completion of the BA/BS or MA/MS degree are eligible for consideration for one of these funding lines. The applicant recommendations for funding are made by specified faculty advisors and FNR Graduate Committee members.
