AMS Graduate Fellowships
The AMS Graduate Fellowships are sponsored by industry leaders and government agencies and are designed to attract promising young scientists to prepare for careers in the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic fields.
- Applicants must be entering their first year of graduate school in the upcoming fall semester and provide evidence of acceptance as a full-time student at an accredited U.S. institution at the time of the award
- Applicants must be pursuing a degree in the atmospheric or related sciences
- Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 on a 4.0-point scale
- Applicants must be U.S. citizens or hold permanent resident status (no age restriction exists)
The evaluation of applicants will be based on applicant’s performance as an undergraduate student, including academic records, recommendations, and Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) scores. Selection will be made by the AMS Executive Committee. The AMS does not prepare written evaluations of either successful or unsuccessful candidates.
A $24,000 stipend will be presented to each fellowship recipient for a nine-month period in the upcoming academic year. In addition, fellowship recipients will receive partial travel support to attend the AMS Annual Meeting.
