SRC Research Universities

SRC Fellowships for 2019-2020 are tenable only at U.S. institutions of higher education. The preference is that the student will be attending a university that has research contracts with the SRC GRC. Candidates must already be enrolled in a graduate PhD program at the time this application is submitted. SRC research universities and names of faculty who are directors or principal investigators for GRC projects are listed on the SRC website here.
