The Forgash Fellowship for Solar Energy Research was established in 2009 through the generosity of John (‘00) and Karla Forgash. An award of $6,000 is provided to a Notre Dame graduate student engaged in solar energy research with an ND Energy affiliated faculty member or a faculty member who is willing to become affiliated. The application process is held October 1-November 15 annually. The award may be used to support the student's stipend, purchase laboratory supplies, and travel for the student to present their research at a national conference. For questions regarding the Forgash Fellowship and application process, please contact Barbara Villarosa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
