At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

National Physical Science Consortium Fellowship Programs

The National Physical Science Consortium (NPSC) is again open for receipt of applications at for the following programs:

  • The Traditional NPSC Program - provides a two-phase, six-year fellowship. initial support is for two or three years, depending on the employer-sponsor. if the student makes satisfactory progress and continues to meet the conditions of the award, support may continue for a total of up to six years. students typically apply during their senior year.
  • The Dissertation Support Program - provides support while the graduate student conducts dissertation research. students should apply in the year prior to the beginning of their dissertation research program but not until they can describe their research at least in general terms.
The Consortium comprises leading universities (who provide tuition and fees) and private corporation and governmental research laboratories (who provide stipends and two summers of employment). NPSC welcomes applications from all qualified students, with continued emphasis on recruitment of a diverse pool of female and underrepresented minority applicants.

The deadline for the online application is November 5, 2011.
