This prestigious undergraduate fellowship recognizes superior performance and future potential in sophomore and junior students enrolled in Energy Resource Science, Energy Resource Management and Development, Energy Systems Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Geology and Geophysics, Chemistry, and Physics. The fellowship provides students a unique experience to work directly with faculty mentors, graduate students and energy companies on relevant, authentic research and development projects. Upon receipt of the fellowship, awardees should contact the SER Academics Office to arrange an appropriate research experience. Fellows will collaborate with research teams leading to publications in peer-reviewed journals and potential commercialization. The fellowship also provides funding to attend a national or international professional conference. These experiences will position students for long-term competitive success in the energy arena, promote "workforce-ready" skills and enhance student competitiveness in the workforce. The fellowship is possible through a generous donation by the Nielson family to the School of Energy Resources (SER).
The fellowship will be awarded for the 2014-2015 academic year through the student's financial aid package.
Up to 2 annually (subject to available funding)
