The Department of Education’s program, Graduate Assistantships in Areas of National Need (GAANN), provides fellowships to support graduate students with excellent records who plan to pursue a Ph.D. in a field designated as an area of national need. The fellowship includes a stipend, tuition, and required fees, which are guaranteed for up to five years for students making satisfactory progress toward their doctoral degree. The department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (CEAE) at CU Boulder currently hosts a GAANN program geared toward engineering resilience. The goal of this GAANN fellowship is to train future scientists and engineers in research, coursework, and teaching in different areas that relate to resilience in the face of natural or manmade disasters. Please take a look at the resources on this website, especially the page on how to apply to the program!
