ELIGIBILITY: C2B2-Chevron Graduate Fellowships are awarded to 2nd or 3rd year PhD students who will be close to the end of his/her degree at the time the fellowship period ends. Applicants must be enrolled as a full-time graduate student in a PhD program at the University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado State University, or Colorado School of Mines.
FUNDING: C2B2-Chevron Graduate Fellowships are two year awards. Fellowship recipients receive $8,000 per year. Up to $5,000 of each annual award may be used to supplement the regular stipend offered by the student's home department (graduate students working at NREL will be funded via applicant's home university). The remaining funds (up to $3,000) may be used to support the student's research, including travel to conferences, computer purchases, research supplies, etc. Recipients must continue to make significant progress towards the completion of a degree program in order to maintain fellowship funding.
REVIEW PROCESS: C2B2-Chevron Graduate Fellowship applicants are reviewed by the C2B2 Executive Board of Directors. Chevron Technology Venture representatives review and make the final selection of fellowship recipients. Top applicants may be asked to meet with Chevron representatives at the C2B2 Semi-Annual Meetings. Applicants should plan accordingly.
