Fellowships

The Walston Chubb Fellowship for Materials Behavior at High Temperatures

This fellowship will support a US graduate student to study some aspect of the effect of temperatures above 1000C on the properties of solid materials. Typically, such aspects include mechanical properties, thermodynamic properties, chemical compatibility, phase relationships, and environmental degradation. The area of research chosen should be compatible with a graduate degree in Metallurgical Engineering.

The fellowship is named after Walston Chubb, a graduate of the Missouri University of Science and Technology, who retired after spending most of his career with Westinghouse working on nuclear reactor materials. He has authored over 40 publications and holds 10 patents. The fellowship is endowed by Mr. Chubb and the Westinghouse Corporation.

Fees are not included in this fellowship, however this fellowship can be supplemented with the Chancellors Fellowship as described below. Requests for further information should be directed to Greg Hilmas

The General Motors Powder Metallurgy Fellowship

The General Motors Fellowship will support a US graduate student to study an aspect of powder metallurgy. Such aspects include process development, novel processing techniques, new powder metallurgy materials, sintering behavior, rapid solidification, and powder processing. The Fellow would be expected to spend a small portion of his time helping with undergraduate laboratories conducted in the new General Motors Undergraduate Powder Metallurgy Laboratory.

Fees are not included in this fellowship, however this fellowship can also be supplemented with the Chancellors Fellowship described below. Requests for further information should be directed to Greg Hilmas.

GAANN Fellowships

Fellowships are available to U.S. graduate students in Materials Science & Engineering through the Department of Education's Grants in Areas of National Need, GAANN program.  The program is designed to encourage some of the best students from the United States to pursue their Ph.D. degrees, and it offers them a multi-faceted approach that provides hands-on research, community outreach and management experience.  For more information click here.

Chancellors Fellowships

U.S. students in Metallurgical Engineering who qualify and are pursuing a Ph.D. can receive a waiver of their fees. This fellowship is offered to applicants for any academic degree program at Missouri S&T based on factors such as GRE scores, grade point average, class rank etc. Normally an undergraduate grade point average of 3.5 is required unless sufficient other factors are strong enough to make a special case. If the student has another fellowship or graduate research assistantship, which does not cover fees, then they can supplement that support with the Chancellor's Fellowship.
