The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology is proud to announce the 2015Nanofellowship competition is now open to accept applications.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: APRIL 30 2015
The University of Waterloo has profound strengths in nanotechnology. The campus is home to world-class researchers, flagship research facilities, and Canada’s largest nanotechnology engineering undergraduate degree program. The Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) is headquartered in the new $160M Quantum-Nano Centre (QNC) opened in September 2012, where faculty and graduate students have access to state-of-the-art tools and infrastructure for research at the nanoscale. Attracting outstanding new faculty, students and research personnel, fostering new national and international partnerships, enhancing collaborations, and enabling research at the forefront of science and engineering, WIN is becoming a global centre of excellence for nanotechnology and its applications.
Attracting the best and brightest from around the world
Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) fellowships are awarded to graduate students pursuing nanotechnology research at the University Waterloo. Fellowships in Nanotechnology are valued at CDN $10,000 each. This fellowship funding is on top of the research assistantship support from the supervising faculty member. Fellowships can be held simultaneously with other graduate awards (subject to the requirements of other scholarships/awards). These prestigious fellowships are open to new graduate applicants and current graduate students who have a minimum of two terms remaining in their program. Applicants must satisfy the general eligibility requirements for the University of Waterloo graduate scholarships.
Focus areas in nanotechnology include, but are not limited to:
- Nanomaterials for energy, environmental and health sectors
- Nanoscale electronic, photonic and hybrid devices and systems
- Nanotools, instrumentation and metrology
- Nanomedicine, medical devices & imaging, pharmaceutical engineering
Special consideration will be given to students intending to pursue projects involving cross-disciplinary collaboration in nanotechnology. Selection of recipients for the fellowships will be made by a committee chaired by the Executive Director of the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology.
