EERI/FEMA NEHRP GRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS IN EARTHQUAKE HAZARD REDUCTION
The one-year fellowship, funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is designed to foster the participation of capable individuals in working toward goals and activities of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program. One graduate fellowship will be awarded for 2023-2024 academic year.
The EERI/FEMA NEHRP Fellowship provides a stipend of $12,000 that can be used for tuition, fees, research expenses and the required attendance and participation at the 2024 EERI Annual Meeting.
This fellowship recognizes graduate students with strong promise to advance the field of earthquake risk mitigation. Students are evaluated based on a combination of graduate and undergraduate research experience and accomplishments, alignment of their work with the mission of EERI, academic excellence, leadership potential, extracurricular activities that contribute to reducing earthquake risks, and their ability to articulate their planned path forward in the field of earthquake risk reduction. The applicants are strongly encouraged to address each of these components in their application statement and describe the potential impacts of their research on earthquake risk mitigation.
Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate degree program at an accredited U.S. college or university and must hold U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status. All applications must include an academic transcript and a statement of educational and career goals that also describes involvement in EERI. All application materials must be submitted electronically to EERI, including a letter of nomination from a faculty sponsor at the student’s institution and two additional reference letters. Letters should evaluate the applicant’s recent academic performance, document the applicant's research accomplishments, and assess the candidate’s potential to contribute to the field.
