Forgash Graduate

Kamat 5

The Forgash Fellowship for Solar Energy Research provides a $6,000 award 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 applications process is held October 1-November 15. Applicants are notified in mid-December. The award is made at the start of the next calendar year and used to support the student's stipend, laboratory supplies, and travel for the student to present their research at a national conference.
