NRT 12-month fellowship support is available to students who have been newly admitted to a UW PhD program in the department of their interest — usually chemistry, computer science & engineering, electrical & computer engineering, materials science & engineering, or physics. The fellowship provides 12 months of full support during your second year in AQET.
Currently, we are only accepting applications from prospective UW students who have been accepted to their department PhD programs. The AQET fellowship supports their 2nd year of PhD studies, when the bulk of the AQET curriculum occurs.
Recipients will be selected based on how their research and academic goals align with QISE (quantum information science & engineering), their potential for multidisciplinary collaboration and broadening participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), leadership and outreach experience, and academic excellence. You will be asked to provide an updated resume / CV.
If selected, the fellowship will be awarded April 1, 2024, for support during the 2025 – 2026 academic year.
