The Office of the Dean of Graduate Education (ODGE) is pleased to announce the call for departmental nominations for the Wellington and Irene Loh Fund Fellowship. Eligible MIT graduate students should direct applications to their departmental graduate administrator. Questions may be directed to ODGE Manager of Graduate fellowships, Scott Tirrell (firstname.lastname@example.org). There will be 4 awards. Graduate students from any field are all eligible. The amount will be one semester of tuition (fall of spring) with a stipend of $2664 for 4.5 months, as well as MIT Student Health Insurance for one term. This is intended to provide support for graduate students of Chinese ancestry. Each department may nominate one student. Nomination packets should include:
- completed copy of the attached nomination form, preferably with an endorsement from the Department Head
- A brief (1-2 pages) research summary from the student, or, for first year students, a copy of the nominee’s “statement of objectives” from his or her application for admission
- A curriculum vitae
- A transcript (for currently enrolled students and unofficial transcript or grade report is fine)
- At least two letters of recommendation from faculty in the department (for currently enrolled students), or from the applicant’s admissions folder
Nomination packages should be sent to the Manager of Graduate Fellowships, Scott Tirrell (email@example.com) electronically as PDF files by 5:00pm on Thursday, May 30th, 2013 by the Department. Hard copies will not be accepted. The Department, as nominator, will be notified first of all decisions; students will then receive confirmation of awards via email and written letter.
