GAANN: Graduate Assistantships in Areas of National Need

Program awards fellowships and enhanced educational opportunities including faculty mentorship to Ph.D. students in Computer Science. Our specific goals are to use these GAANN fellowships to: a) aggressively recruit students from under-represented populations, particularly women, b) provide fellows with high-quality education and additional training in teaching techniques, and c) help each GAANN fellow to acquire independent research capability and to complete a high quality Ph.D. dissertation within 5 years. The fellowship provides need- based financial support of up to $30,000 per year. Additional financial support for research expenses (text books, supplies, computer hardware and software, and memberships etc.) and travel to attend conferences are also provided.
