Chandran J. Shukla Fellowship
The Chandran J. Shukla Fellowship was established by Jagadish and Anne Shukla in memory of their son. The purpose of the Fellowship is to assist graduate students pursuing a degree in Climate Dynamics. The recipient may be either an in-state or out of state student. The Fellowship is based on a combination of academic merit and financial need. The Shuklas and a few other faculty members, have endowed the Fellowship with enough funds to support expenditures of about $1000 per year.
The Fellowship may be used to help one or more students purchase computer hardware or software, books or journal subscriptions, and other academic supplies; to enable students to attend scientific conferences and meetings; to support registration fees, travel-related expenses, and educational and research activities, including lectures; to provide direct student support such as stipend funding or tuition waiver; and to organize a Journal Club for all Climate Dynamics graduate students. The Fellowship is renewable.
Students are encouraged to submit proposals for funding under the Fellowship. Proposals may be submitted by individuals or groups of students. Decisions on funding the proposals will be made by representatives of GMU based on the merit of the proposals and on the availability of funds. For best chances of funding, students should submit proposals by October 1 to Barry Klinger, via email.
