Congratulations to our 2014 GRAND Scholars
Announcing the 2014 recipients of the new GRAND Postgraduate Scholar (G*PGS) program.
Posted by GRAND NCE, July 23, 2014

The GRAND Postgraduate Scholar (G*PGS) program provides stable multi-year support for graduate students whose research is directly linked to core deliverables in GRAND projects. Restricted to students earning their final degree, the GRAND Scholars are those engaged in research critical to the success of a GRAND project whose scholarship strongly advances the objectives of the GRAND NCE. The selection committee awards up to ten new GRAND Scholarships annually with up to 30 GRAND Scholars at any given time. 

GRAND Postgraduate Scholars have special opportunities to network with each other and with other GRAND researchers engaged in related research. Each GRAND Scholar will receive a stipend of $10K annually for up to three years to support research closely aligned with the goals of one or more GRAND projects.
