Nominations being accepted for Maeder Graduate Fellowship in Energy and the Environment

February 8, 2016

Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment (ACEE) is soliciting nominations for the Maeder Graduate Fellowship in Energy and the Environment for the academic year 2016-2017. This graduate fellowship is made possible by the Paul A. Maeder ’75 Fund for Innovation in Energy and the Environment. The deadline for nominations is March 31. Notice of the award will be made by April 29.

The recipient will receive a one-year fellowship to cover tuition and stipend for the 2016-17 academic year.

Faculty members are encouraged to nominate students who have passed their general exams and are performing research related to energy and/or the environment as impacted by energy. Nominated students may be enrolled in any Ph.D. program on campus and nominations from departments outside of engineering are encouraged.

Nomination letters should be brief (no more than three pages) and include a description of the graduate student’s research on energy and/or the environment, the student’s accomplishments to date, and his or her potential for success. The student’s curriculum vitae and Princeton transcript should also 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 or her research activities.

For reference, information about the research undertaken by Wenkai Liang, this year’s fellow, is available on the ACEE website.

Nomination documents should be sent to Moira J. Selinka, ACEE Education and Outreach Coordinator at
