Frenkel Foundation Fellowships

The Peter J. Frenkel Fellowships recognize outstanding graduate research in energy efficiency by students who have reached advanced doctoral candidacy.

These fellowships are made possible by the generous support of the Peter J. Frenkel Foundation. These highly competitive awards recognize outstanding graduate research in energy or energy efficiency by two students per academic year who have advanced to doctoral candidacy. The award is administered through a quarterly stipend of $1,000, for a total amount of $4,000. This award is meant to be additive to the student’s existing funding, but may also be used in cases where support for the student has been exhausted towards the end of his or her candidacy.
