The Peter J. Frenkel Fellowships recognize outstanding graduate research in energy efficiency by economically disadvantaged 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, one or two students per an academic year, who has advanced to doctoral candidacy. The award is administered through either 4 stipends of $1,000 over the course of 4 quarters, or 2 stipends of $2,000 over the course of 2 quarters, both 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 their candidacy.
