Forgash Undergraduate or Graduate


Kamat 5

The Forgash Fellowship for Solar Energy Research provides support to a graduate or undergraduate 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 may be used to support the student's stipend, purchase supplies, and pay for travel so the student may present his/her research at a national conference or meeting. Undergraduate students receiving this award for summer research may also use it to support summer housing and meals. Graduate and undergraduate students interested in applying for a Forgash fellowship should complete an online application in cooperation with their faculty advisor. Faculty advisors will also complete an online application in support of the student applicant. Applications will be accepted from October 1 - November 15 for 2020 awards. Notifications will be made in December.
