PNNL-WSU Distinguished Graduate Research Program applications open for fall 2024 cohort

The WSU Office of Research, the WSU Graduate School, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) are pleased to announce the call for applications for the eighth cohort of the Distinguished Graduate Research Program (DGRP).

To apply, co-advisors from WSU and PNNL should submit a joint-DGRP application online by Nov. 5 for priority consideration. Advisor applications have a hard deadline of Feb. 4.

The DGRP is intended to increase the quality and quantity of STEM PhD students across the WSU system, provide an enhanced experience for the students through research in a U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory, and align WSU faculty with scientists and the unique capabilities and research programs at PNNL and vice versa. Students in the DGRP are funded by their WSU and PNNL advisors, not by the DGRP.
