GAANN Fellowship Opportunities: Chemistry and biochemistry Tech-to-Teaching

Department of Education Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) awards are available to PHD students enrolled in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry.  Recipients must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enrolled in the Ph.D. program and plan to embark on careers in teaching and/or research. The fellowship consists of a stipend up to $30,000 (but which may not exceed the student's level of financial need determined according to federal guidelines) and includes a supervised teaching experience.  

Applicants to the Chemistry and Biochemistry Ph.D. Program:

Review of fellowship applications will begin on April 3, 2015 and continue until all awards have been made.  To be considered:

1. Complete an application for admission: http://www.chemistry.gatech.edu/academics/prospective-graduates .

2. Complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA.  (Note: Acceptance of subsidized loans and other fellowships will reduce financial need and possible eligibility for GAANN. Teaching or research assistantships may be coupled with a GAANN fellowship.)

 

Currently Enrolled Chemistry and Biochemistry Ph.D. Students:

Review of fellowship applications will begin on April 3, 2015 and continue until all awards have been made.  To be considered:

1. Email a personal statement and curriculum vitae (max 5 pages as a single pdf document) to Cam Tyson describing (i) research or teaching experiences, and (ii) your career goals and how these relate to your experiences and participation in selected programs at Georgia Tech.  Please place Chemistry and Biochemistry GAANN in the subject email line.

2. Complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA. (Note: Acceptance of subsidized loans and other fellowships will reduce financial need and possible eligibility for GAANN. Teaching or research assistantships may be coupled with a GAANN fellowship.)

The goal of the Georgia Tech Chemistry and Biochemistry GAANN fellowship program is to make a significant contribution to satisfying the nation's needs for chemistry Ph.D.s who are optimally trained to embark on research and teaching careers. GAANN fellows are expected to participate in components of the Tech to Teaching Faculty Preparation program (i.e., complete one year of TA-ship and/or participate in Georgia Tech Center for Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) seminars/courses and supervised instructional experiences). Graduate applications, transcripts, personal statements, and financial need will be considered by the GAANN Awards committee to determine finalists.
