WiPhy Undergraduate Research Fellowship for Women and Minority Students

Deadlines for the previous Academic Year have already passed, but applications will be available again in the Fall 2021

Every academic year, a research grant of $3,500 will be awarded to deserving individuals who are both active in physics research at NYU and members of WiPhy.

The goal of WiPhy Undergraduate Research Fellowship is to support women and minority students in the NYU Physics Department in their research endeavors. An applicant is expected to perform research in the upcoming academic year and must have already identified a research supervisor as well as a research project.

The required application documents include filling out an online form (which will reopen once applications are available for AY20/21), CV of the applicant, 1 page research proposal (0.5 inch margins, 11pt Arial, 1 line spacing) and a letter of support. Documents should be submitted to Prof. Alexandra Zidovska via email. Letters of support should be emailed by the research supervisor directly to Prof. Alexandra Zidovska. 

A link to applications and contact info for document submission will be posted here for AY21/22.
