June 30 deadline for student fellowship request–for–proposals

News | May 12, 2011 | By:

June 30 is the deadline for student proposals for GSI Fellowships.

The Geosynthetic Institute (GSI) earlier this year placed its annual worldwide call for requests-for-proposals (RFPs) focusing on innovative geosynthetics research and development projects.

There are multiple awards made, each for $10,000 for the first year, and they are renewable for a second and third year up to a total amount of $20,000 per student. Eligible students must have completed their candidacy examinations leading to a doctoral degree in engineering or science.

The proposals must be submitted in the following four-page format (with no exceptions):

  • Page 1—Letter of recommendation from student’s department head or advisor
  • Page 2—Title and detailed abstract of project
  • Page 3—Student’s resume
  • Page 4—Documentation of completed candidacy examination

RFPs for the 2011-2012 academic year must be submitted to both of the e-mail addresses below by June 30, 2011, and awards are announced on, or before, Aug. 1, 2011. Review of the proposals is by the nine-person GSI Board of Directors.
