Paolo Giani (PhD student) was awarded the prestigious Richard and Peggy Notebaert Premier Fellowship! Congratulations Paolo!
The Richard and Peggy Notebaert Premier Fellowships are funded through the largest single gift bestowed upon the University for graduate education. Notebaert fellows receive a stipend of $34,000 to $40,000 annually, according to program, on a 12-month basis, as well as full tuition and a full subsidy of the student health insurance premium on the sponsored plan. Support is renewable for five years as long as the fellow is making satisfactory progress toward his or her degree. Fellows also have priority in accessing professional development funds, including grants for conference travel and presentations, travel for research purposes, and related professional activities.
