The Graduate College invites nominations for a new and exciting postdoctoral fellowship program.  The Schmidt Family Foundation, founded by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt and his wife Wendy Schmidt, has recently launched the Schmidt Science Fellows Program.  The program offers an innovative 11-month postdoctoral experience to students from the natural sciences, engineering, mathematics, and computing-oriented disciplines.  Targeting students who are near completion of their PhDs, the program offers training in fields outside of the student’s current area of expertise.&

The Structural Engineering Travel Fellowship is a $20,000 award that aims to foster an appreciation of the aesthetic potential in the structural design of buildings and bridges by enabling a gifted graduate to experience works of architecture and engineering first hand. The Foundation hopes that the Fellow will in turn influence the practice and teaching of structural engineering in the future. More information can be found at:
