About LIGO Fellowship Program:
The LIGO Student Fellowship Program provides two fellowships each year awarded to LIGO students with a strong interest in instrumentation science who are interested in committing to spend a year at either LIGO observatory to pursue a significant instrument project. The goal of this program is to encourage the long-term presence at an observatory needed for a student to gain experience and to successfully complete a significant instrumentation project. This Fellowship is competitive and is open to all students in LIGO including those already in residence at an observatory and students who wish to develop an expertise in instrument science.
