Incentive Program for External Fellowships

In order to encourage graduate students to apply for external fellowship funding that may supplement or replace MIT funds, the Physics Department offers an external fellowship incentive award. This award, in an amount to be publicized annually, will be given to any student receiving an external fellowship that funds over 25% of the student's stipend and tuition costs. The incentive can be used at the discretion of the student for any student or research related costs.

Students who receive such external funding will receive the incentive amount in place during the first year of the external fellowship. Renewals or extensions of existing awards are not eligible for the incentive award.
