Anadarko Fellowship for Excellence in Energy Scholarship-Graduate Students
endowment provided by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation will annually fund a
prestigious award for PhD students enrolled at the University of Wyoming. The fellowships will be competitively awarded
to recognize and advance excellence in energy scholarship at the University of
Wyoming. The fellowships will promote
innovative and entrepreneurial research in areas aligning with Anadarko's
energy portfolio. These areas include
but are not limited to oil and gas, environmental stewardship and reclamation,
transportation, regulation and policy, health and safety. Visit Anadarko's web site at www.anadarko.com

The fellowship will be awarded for the
2013-2014 academic year through the student's financial aid package.
Number of Awards
Five $5,000 fellowships (subject to available
funding) will be awarded to support PhD students who have completed preliminary
examinations and who show outstanding potential.to support a summer or academic
year research experience. The term of
each fellowship is one academic year.
Funding should demonstrably enhance the awardees' scholarly
development by supporting travel, research supplies, and equipment. During the spring semester, recipients will
participate in the Energy Research and Development Symposium. The public event will be held at the
University of Wyoming and Anadarko fellows will present a synopsis summarizing
the project, including significance, results and potential contributions to the
energy sector. Fellowship outcomes may
include refereed journal articles, intellectual property development and
commercialization of innovations, new collaborative research programs and
enhanced external funding. Students must
maintain full-time enrollment (minimum 9 credit hours) and maintain a UW
cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better.
