JCET is seeking proposals from the JCET faculty or fellows at UMBC or NASA Goddard who wish to engage a new student on a research project, or support an existing exemplary student. Non-JCET faculty members who wish to work with a student should collaborate with a JCET scientist .
UMBC seeks to become the best public research university of our size, and the Joint Center for Earth Systems Technology ( JCET ) contributes to this vision by engaging faculty and students in research critical for the understanding of the Earth System. To this end, JCET welcomes candidate recommendations for JCET Graduate Student Fellowships from relevant UMBC departments offering graduate degrees. Up to two fellowships for the 2019/20 Academic Year will be awarded to qualified, full-time, degree-seeking graduate students in an Earth, biological, physical or computer science, mathematics or engineering, to work on a research project with a JCET faculty member at UMBC or NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The applicant must be enrolled full-time and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher. UMBC faculty members may participate when collaborating with a JCET scientist.
