Application Deadline: 
Applications are being actively sought for Fall 2015
     
Selection
Applications will be reviewed and awardees selected by a multi-disciplinary faculty committee.  Selection is based on the applicant’s achievements, potential for success in the chosen discipline, academic excellence (based on references and academic record), a description of how the choice of this student will promote diversity within the department.

Expectations:
The nominee must be accepted as a new fulltime doctoral student for Fall 2014. He/she is expected to be engaged in fulltime scholarship/creative activity during the academic year. Each nominee must have an academic record consistent with graduate students in the graduate program

Renewal:
The three year award may be renewed for one additional year (for a total of four years), contingent upon satisfactory progress toward completion of the degree. It is expected that the student, major professor, and the department will work together to ensure the necessary funding is available in any subsequent semesters/years required to complete the degree requirements.




 “The University of Idaho has a history of leading exceptional collaborative research efforts. The President’s Doctoral Scholars in STEM Awards will ensure that we continue to provide graduate students from diverse backgrounds with the opportunity to explore and discover new knowledge in the vital areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics—areas that will serve our state, our nation and world in the years ahead.”
