The Forgash Fellowship for Solar Energy Research provides support to a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame who is interested in solar energy collection/conversion technologies through research and discovery with an ND Energy affiliated faculty member or faculty who are willing to become affiliated. The annual award of $5,000 is used to support the student's stipend, laboratory supplies, and travel for the student to present his/her research at a national conference.

To apply, students complete an online application in cooperation with their faculty advisor, and faculty advisors complete an online application in support of the student applicant. Applications are accepted from October 1 to November 15. Notifications are made in early December. View Criteria for details. For questions or more information, contact Barbara Villarosa.

Since 2009, the Forgash fellowship has been made possible through the generosity of John (ND ‘00) and Karla Forgash.
