Link Foundation Ocean Engineering and Instrumentation Ph.D. Fellowship Program

The Link Foundation is accepting research proposals from doctoral candidates in ocean engineering and instrumentation research (e.g., robotics and sensor systems, and related areas), and will award selected candidates grants of $28,500. There are no citizenship restrictions. This is an exciting opportunity for qualified candidates!  Applications are available online. Proposals must be received on or before February 15, 2017. 

 

Objectives:     To foster ocean engineering and ocean instrumentation research; to enhance both the theoretical and practical knowledge and applications of ocean engineering and ocean instrumentation research; and to disseminate the results of that research through lectures, seminars and publications.

The Awards:   On the basis of an application to the Foundation in the form of a research proposal, awards will be made to doctoral candidates enrolled in academic institutions located in the United States and Canada. Each award will consist of a grant of $28,500. There are no citizenship restrictions.

An independent panel of experts in the fields of ocean engineering and ocean instrumentation will review the applications. The main evaluation criteria include the degree of innovation, technical merit and relevance to ocean engineering/instrumentation of the proposed research. Additionally, each candidate should demonstrate intellectual ability and achievement, evidence of creativity and initiative and the potential for a career that will impact ocean engineering and ocean instrumentation.
