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.
Research grants are also available through NYU's College of Arts and Science for research and travel to conferences.
Dean's Undergraduate Research Fund (DURF) Grant: Available every semester for Undergrads enrolled in the College of Arts and Science. These grants are for students who are doing research at NYU, freshmen and sophomores who wish to learn research skills, and those who need financial assistance to attend conferences. More information can be found here.
Dean's Opportunity Fund for Graduate School Application: Available to those who demonstrate need in order to apply to graduate school. More information can be found here.
