Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics and Statistics/Eugene Enneking Doctoral Fellowship Program
The Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics and Statistics announces a competition for Eugene Enneking Doctoral Fellowships. Enneking fellowships are designed to attract and retain outstanding graduate students who are seeking a PhD in mathematical sciences at Portland State University. These fellowships are part of a recent $3.9 million gift from alumnus and entrepreneur Fariborz Maseeh to develop an outstanding computational mathematics and statistics program at Portland State University and to promote partnerships for research and innovation.
Eligibility: Applicants must be either students seeking admission to the department’s PhD program in the mathematical sciences program or full-time graduate students pursuing a PhD in mathematical sciences. In particular, the department seeks outstanding students who plan to or are already specializing in the areas of mathematics and statistics applied to the health sciences, finance/business, general sciences, or engineering and computer science. Special consideration will be given to candidates interested in computational mathematics and statistics; however, applicants working in other areas of research will also be considered. The selection will be based on merit rather than on applicants’ current or potential scientific interests. Fellowships are generally awarded to students with a GPA of at least 3.5.
Awards: Up to three fellowships of $20,000 per academic year, plus tuition remission, will be awarded. Each initial award will be made for up to two years with the possibility of renewal for a second and/or third year. The renewal of fellowships will require a re-application and will be reviewed with other applicants for such awards.
Application procedures: Applicants should submit (1) a written application for the fellowship (students applying concurrently for admission to the PhD program at PSU should state clearly why they would like to study at PSU and should list up to three faculty members with whom they would like to work during a PhD program), (2) a current curriculum vitae, (3) a copy of all academic transcripts, and (4) at least two letters of recommendation to: PhD in Mathematical Sciences Committee, Fariborz Maseeh Department in Mathematics and Statistics, Portland State University, Portland, OR 97207–0751. Applications should be submitted on or before January 15, 2012.
