Fellowships are provided for a faculty member and at least 2 but not more than 3 students/team. More than one FaST team is eligible from a university. The faculty member pre-selects students. Students will subsequently complete their component of the application once the faculty member provides the link.To obtain the best match, an overview of the research programs at Argonne is available in our online Catalog of Research Projects : http://www.dep.anl.gov/catalog/catalog.htm
Identify 2 or 3 research areas from the catalog and include in your application (project title & number).Contact Frank M. Vivio if you have questions about the FaST program:
