PNNL-WSU graduate program applications open

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 fourth cohort of the Distinguished Graduate Research Program (DGRP). Incoming students are nominated jointly by a WSU faculty and a PNNL scientist.

The DGRP is intended to increase the quality and quantity of STEM doctoral students across the WSU system, while providing an enhanced research experience by aligning WSU faculty, students, and PNNL scientists with the unique capabilities and research programs at PNNL. Funding support is provided jointly from WSU and PNNL sources. Prior to completing required course requirements and successful passing of the preliminary exams, students within the DGRP will receive financial support commensurate with department norms funded by a WSU college, department, faculty, or grant. After completing these milestones, known in WSU as All but Disseration – or ABD, DGRP students will receive a stipend at Step 85, or five steps higher than the department norm, that is funded by PNNL for up to two years while the student is performing research at PNNL. Additionally, students will receive a full, academic year tuition waiver provided by the WSU Graduate School.

Interested co-advisors from WSU and PNNL should submit a joint-DGRP application online by January 10th, 2020.
