Larry Martin and his wife, Joyce O’Neill have endowed a graduate fellowship for students in the College of Science. Mr. Martin is a math (and engineering) alumnus and had a full career as a mathematician doing mathematical modeling for companies such as Lockheed Martin and IBM before leading Troon Vineyard.
The Martin-O’Neill Fellowship is awarded to a graduate student from any department in the College of Science whose research involves computational modeling. This Fellowship covers a stipend of $25,000 disbursed quarterly ($6250/quarter) and a tuition waiver for the academic year. The Fellowship will begin at the start of fall term and continue for one calendar year. The Fellow’s department will be responsible for the tuition payment during the summer term at 3 credits. Each department may nominate one graduate student whose research focus involves computational modeling. Nominees in the 2ndor later years of the PhD program will be given preference during the selection process.
Nominations in May; start date the following fall term
The Fellowship is awarded to a Ph.D. candidate whose scientific research makes use of computational modeling. All Ph.D. students beyond the first year are preferred, but any qualified student may be considered.
Each department nominates one candidate. Please submit one combined pdf file to email@example.com by the deadline.
Application requirement: Submit one combined pdf file to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline with the following materials:
Nominations exceeding page limits or that do not follow these instructions will be returned without consideration.
