    Starr Research Fellowship & Fieldhouse Research Fellowship

    IIT graduate students are invited to apply for the Starr Research Fellowship and the Fieldhouse Research Fellowship. Each fellowship provides up to $15,000 for one year and can be used for tuition support and stipend. The fellowships are NOT renewable, but may be supplemented by funding from other sources.
    The fellowships are made possible through a generous donation from the Starr Foundation, and IIT’s capital campaign match to honor Mr. Irv Fieldhouse, who until his death in 2005 had been an active member of the IIT-IITRI community for more than 40 years. To enhance Mr. Fieldhouse’s commitment in developing joint research projects, both fellowships target research that leads to cooperation between IIT and IIT Research Institute (IITRI), the Institute for Food Safety and Health (IFSH), Fermilab, or Argonne National Laboratory (ANL).
    Student Eligibility:

    IIT students currently enrolled in a Master of Science or Doctoral program in the following departments: AM, BCS, BME, CAEE, CHBE, CS, ECE, MMAE, or Physics. The student must be nominated by an IIT faculty member. (see below for faculty member eligibility)

    The Fellows are required to pursue advanced study and research under faculty guidance; support faculty and their external advisors in specific research projects; and make their own contributions to academe through writing and research.

    A single application is considered for both the Starr Research Fellowship and the Fieldhouse Research Fellowship

    Eligibility of Advisor: Tenure-track Assistant Professor or above, from AM, BCS, BME, CAEE, CHBE, CS, ECE, MMAE, or Physics.


    Note: The IIT advisor should recommend the contact and initiate the communication with IITRI, IFSH, Fermilab, or ANL.
