In an effort to foster education and innovation in the area of societal production and utilization of energy, the Link Foundation invites fellowship applications.


Students working toward a Ph.D. degree in energy-related fields at universities located in the U.S. or Canada.  Fellowships are offered with a duration of 2 years and will be paid in two installments of $25,000. It is anticipated that three or four Link Energy Fellowships will be awarded in 2009. In recent years, about 50-75 applications have been received.  $21,500 is to be used for the Fellow's stipend, $2,500 is to be used for expenses associated with the Fellow's research, and $1,000 is to be used for attending one or more technical meetings and/or publication expenses.  Applications are due December 1. 


The Link Foundation provides funds for direct costs, but does NOT support student tuition, institutional overhead or pooled costs.
