  OCEES GRADUATE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The Program

   The goal of the OCEES fellowship is to increase research support for graduate students in ecology and evolutionary biology at Ohio University. The program provides relief from teaching for highly competitive graduate students who are enrolled in masters or doctoral programs in OCEES departments. The fellowship serves to facilitate the studentís research productivity by enabling them to devote full time to complete field or laboratory research or work on writing theses/dissertations and/or publications.  

 

Funding

   The OCEES Fellowship program provides funding replacement for one or more quarters of stipend to replace normal teaching stipends.  The tuition waiver remains in place. 

 

Eligibility

Applicants must:

    be mentored by an OCEES faculty member and have degree research with sufficient ecological or evolutionary relevance

    have an approved thesis or dissertation research proposal filed in their departmental degree program, or the expectation that a research proposal will be approved by spring of the current year

    not have research assistant funding from other sources during the period of the fellowship

 

Responsibilities

OCEES Fellows:

    Will be required to present a seminar on their work (most likely during a spring quarter)

    Submit a 1-page report of research accomplishments during the fellowship

    You must prepare a 1-page web page describing your fellowship activities.

    Must acknowledge support of the OCEES Fellowship in research related communications
