The Kummer Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Doctoral Fellows Program is an integrated, collaborative program that connects academic rigor to real-world practicality for students interested in pursuing Ph.D. degrees in STEM and related disciplines.
The program is limited to no more than 100 active fellows and is open to domestic and international students. Each doctoral fellow receives a Graduate Research Assistantship position on campus, a fellowship (paid out semesterly), and tuition remission for required coursework for up to four years.
The Kummer I&E fellowship goes well beyond defraying educational expenses. The program’s belief in my vision rekindled my inner spirit, boosted my motivation and gave me the opportunity to grow.”
