American Meteorological Society Fellowship Program
The AMS Fellowship Program is a source of scholarships, useful resources, and unique opportunities for outstanding students looking to pursue graduate education in the atmospheric or related sciences. To date, 286 students have been designated as AMS fellowship recipients. The program helps these first-year graduate students to be educated about unique challenges facing the world so that they may better tackle these real-world issues after graduation. With fellowships come several benefits, including financial support to maintain a full course load over their first year of graduate study, the opportunity to be special guests at the AMS Annual Meeting and exclusive events therein, a unique tour of several agencies in the Washington DC area, and ongoing academic and career advocation and support from AMS.
