Use this application to apply for the CEI Graduate Fellowship, and to be considered for the Education & Training Fellowship and DIRECT traineeship program (FAQ). Applicants may apply to all three programs, but are only eligible to receive one funded fellowship. Applications for the upcoming academic year are due by 5:00 pm on May 1. We have moved the application process from summer to spring quarter, allowing us to make decisions and inform both students and departments by June 1.
Please note that recommendation letters are also due by May 1. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that referees have sufficient time to submit their reference by the May 1 deadline. The system will send a reminder message to referees when the application is submitted. If you are using this method to notify your referees, please make sure that you submit your application early enough to give your referees time to prepare the letter.
If you choose to ask your referee via another channel, please ask they submit reference letters here.
