Hertz Fellowship information sessions

Juniors and seniors who are interested in applying for a PhD program in engineering, mathematics or the physical or biological sciences are invited to attend an information session to learn more about the Hertz Fellowship, a graduate fellowship available at more than 40 U.S. research universities, including Case Western Reserve University.

Lee Swanger, a member of the Hertz Foundation Board of Directors and a past Hertz Fellow, will lead information sessions Monday, Sept. 19, at 9 a.m. and Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 1 p.m. in Nord Hall, Room 356. Breakfast will be provided at the Sept. 19 session and lunch will be provided at the Sept. 20 session.

  • $34,000 per academic year stipend;
  • Additional stipend if coordinated with other major fellowships;
  • $5,000 annual dependent childcare stipend; and
  • Programs and networking offered as part of a lifelong Hertz community.

Fields of interest include—but are not limited to—astrophysics, quantitative biology, statistics, earth science, biotechnology and more.

Successful candidates are:

  • Applying to a PhD program or are in the first year of one;
  • An American citizen or permanent resident;
  • Broadly knowledgeable innovators who see challenges in new ways; and
  • Eager to make a positive impact in the applied physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering.
