Ph.D. Application Requirements

The Physics and Engineering Physics Department is pleased to offer two Graduate Fellowships funded by the Louisiana Board of Regents to eligible Physics PhD applicants for Fall 2017. The Board of Regents stipulates that the Fellowships are to be employed as a recruitment tool of highly-sought after, nationally competitive Physics PhD applicants, and it is expected that the Fellowship recipients will fit that bill. Each Fellowship provides an annual stipend of $33,000 for four years for the recipient to carry out research towards the PhD degree. No teaching assistant duties are expected of the recipients. Recipients of Fellowships must be U.S. citizens or resident aliens holding permanent visa status. Special consideration will be given to women and underrepresented minority applicants, as well as the applicants from the State of Louisiana and the surrounding region.

How to apply for the Fellowship: There is no additional application for the Fellowship. All eligible applicants who submit the application to the Tulane Physics PhD program will be considered for the Fellowship.

The application deadline is February 1 for the admission and enrollment in the Fall semester of the same calendar year. There is no application fee.
