The GAANN Program
What is the GAANN Engineering Fellowship Program?
The School of Engineering has received thirteen U.S. Department of Education Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANNs) grants since 2009. These grants support fellowships for U.S. citizens as they pursue their doctoral degrees in fields deemed to be “areas of national need.”
The funding supports GAANN research/education in the following distinct areas (click on any for details):
- Computer systems security
- Connecticut Cybersecurity Center
- Addressing Aging Infrastructure: From Components to Networks
- Exascale computing
- Medical Devices for the Public Health
- Multi-functional Polymer-Based Materials
The School of Engineering invites prospective graduate students to apply to the GAANN Fellowship program. Students from traditionally underrepresented populations, including women and minority populations, are strongly encouraged to apply.
