AMS Graduate Fellowship
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) is pleased to invite applications for a 2011 AMS Graduate Fellowship in the History of Science, to be awarded to a student in the process of completing a dissertation on the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences.
The Fellowship carries a $15,000 stipend and will support one year of dissertation research.
Fellowships cannot be deferred and must be used for the year awarded, but can be used to support research at a location away from the students institution, provided the plan is approved by the students thesis advisor.
The goal of the graduate fellowship is to support dissertation topics in the history of the atmospheric, or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences, and to foster close working relations between historians and scientists.
An effort will be made to place the student into a mentoring relationship with an AMS member at an appropriate institution.
