Engineering College Graduate Student Research Fellowships

$18,000 Stipend
Plus Tuition

The College of Engineering at Tufts University has an exciting NSF
fellowship opportunity available for an outstanding graduate student
computer scientist who is also interested in being involved in bringing
concepts from the foundations of computer science into middle school
(grades 6-8) curriculum.  The fellowships are for the amount of $18,000
per twelve months, and are annually renewable up to three years, based
upon fellow performance.

The Computer Science Fellow chosen for this program will work with 6th
through 8th grade teachers and students with the guidance of Tufts
Computer Science Faculty.  The goal is to infuse principles of
algorithmic thinking and computer science applications into middle
school mathematics classes in Massachusetts.  The fellow will act as a
resource for the middle school mathematics teachers.

Graduate students accepted as fellows will receive $18,000 for a June
May commitment and an annual full tuition scholarship for graduate study 
in Computer Science in the College of Engineering at Tufts University.  
The fellowship is in lieu of a traditional teaching or research 
assistantship, encouraging instead contributing an understanding of the 
foundations of computer science to 6-8 classes while pursuing their own 
advanced degree and computer science research.
