Neukom Graduate Fellows

The Neukom Graduate Fellows Program aims to support graduate research across the campus and provide a steppingstone to help faculty and students secure outside funding for their research. Priority is given for novelty as well as for promising research that does not currently enjoy funding, but shows great promise.

Fellowships will provide a full year of funding, including stipend and benefits, to Ph.D. students engaged in faculty-advised research in the development of novel computational techniques as well as the application of computational methods to problems in the Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities, and the Arts.

Awards are for one year, however recipients may reapply and compete for the fellowship from year to year. As part of the mandate of the Neukom Institute is to broaden the reach of computational science, new proposals will be given special consideration.


Each application should include:

  • CV for faculty advisor and applicant
  • Faculty advisor should also include current funding sources
  • Research Proposal (limited to 2 single-spaced pages) that includes a general overview of the proposed research and specifically describes the computational component. Proposals should be written and submitted by the graduate fellow applicant.

Proposals must be submitted electronically as pdf documents to Neukom Institute
Email questions to Dan Rockmore


  • April 1, 2014: proposals due
  • June 1, 2014: notification of award

Fellowship completion

All fellowships must produce a working paper that is supplied to the Institute Director and will be posted to the Institute's web site; all working papers and/or publications must acknowledge the William H. Neukom 1964 Institute for Computational Science.
