Ph.D. FELLOWSHIP The Department of Entomology at Kansas State University is now offering a Ph.D. Fellowship to a select applicant who wishes to start a Ph.D. program in Fall 2016. Fellowships provide $28K per year for exceptional students to pursue a PhD in Entomology with any member of our faculty in any area relevant to our departmental expertise. We are looking for highly motivated, self-directed students who have experience conducting research and can clearly express themselves in writing and orally. Selection will be based on: academic excellence, as evidenced by rigor of previous coursework, GPA and (general) GRE scores; research experience, as evidenced by publications and presentations; letters of recommendation, which should address the applicant’s suitability for a Fellowship and potential impact on entomology; and a statement of purpose, which should include goals and career aspirations, and specific research focus. We will also consider the fit between the student’s interests and expertise available in the Department.
For application instructions, visit our web page and follow links to Graduate Program. Applications are due Jan. 15, 2016; please note in your cover letter that you are applying for a Ph.D. Fellowship, and notify Dr. David Margolies at firstname.lastname@example.org that you are applying for the fellowship.
