CIRES Graduate Student Research Award Program

Web_Education_Graduate_Student_Research_Fellowship.jpgCIRES supports a Graduate Research Award program to promote student scholarship and research excellence. The goals of the program are to attract the best talent to CIRES at the outset of their graduate careers, and to enable graduating seniors to complete and publish their research results. Any current or prospective Ph.D. student advised by a CIRES Fellow is eligible for this one-time award opportunity. Incoming graduate students must be accepted into a graduate level program at the University of Colorado Boulder to qualify for this fellowship opportunity.

The CIRES GSRA is granted in the form of a Research Assistant position for one or two semesters at 50% time. The award includes a monthly salary, fully paid tuition, and a partially paid premium (90%) towards the Buff Gold insurance plan. Funding for prospective students may be used in their second year if a Teaching Assistantship covers their first year. Students may receive a 50% research award for one or two semesters.

Note: Students must be accepted into a graduate level program at the University of Colorado Boulder to qualify for this award opportunity.
