Nominations open for Maeder Graduate Fellowship in Energy and the Environment

Published on February 14, 2017 by Sharon Adarlo

Nominations are now being accepted for the Maeder Graduate Fellowship in Energy and the Environment for the academic year 2017-2018. This fellowship is made possible by the Paul A. Maeder ’75 Fund for Innovation in Energy and the Environment, which is administered by the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University. The deadline for nominations is March 31, 2017.

A Princeton faculty member is invited to nominate his/her best post-generals, non-DCE graduate student performing research related to energy and/or the environment as impacted by energy; the student may be enrolled in any Ph.D. program on campus and nominations from departments outside of engineering are also encouraged. The recipient will receive a one-year fellowship to cover tuition and stipend (and may include a summer stipend) to begin summer or fall semester 2017. Nominations should be brief (no more than 3 pages) and include a description of the graduate student’s research focused on energy and/or the environment, his/her accomplishments to date, and his/her potential for success. The student’s CV and Princeton transcript should be attached to the nomination document.

Selection of Maeder Fellows is determined by a competitive process; on rare occasions more than one fellow may be selected. Nominations will be assessed on the basis of their potential impact toward enabling solutions to ensure our sustainable energy and environmental future. The recipient will be required to submit a post-fellowship report of his/her research activities.

Information about the research undertaken by AY17 Maeder Fellows, Clark Chen and Ryan Edwards, is available on the Andlinger Center website as a reference. Nominations are due Friday, March 31, 2017 and should be sent to mselinka@princeton.edu. Notice of the award will be made by April 28, 2017.
