Research Fellowships

ACENET / Researchers / Research Fellowships
In late 2014, ACENET launched another round of Research Fellowships to students at our member institutions that will be available until March, 2017. These awards are designed to further research projects that utilize our advanced research computing resources.

The program is available to graduate and undergraduate students in any discipline. Graduate students will be eligible for up to $20,000 over two years and undergraduate students $5,000 for a minimum 400-hour work term.

Supervisors are required for both types of Fellowships. These must be regular, full-time, tenured or tenure-track faculty at one of the ACENET member institutions. University librarians are also eligible as supervisors.

The ACENET Fellowships are offered only to students at the ACENET member institutions.

Deadlines for application are determined by individual institutions. Contact the designated representatives at your institution for details. Representatives are listed in the ACENET Research Fellowships Program 2014-17 Information Package.

ACENET will only accept nominations from the designated contacts at each institution. Nominations will not be accepted from either individual faculty members or students. General inquiries can be directed to

Congratulations to the 2016 recipients!
