Julie and Rocky Dixon Award

$14,000 per doctoral award recipient and research GTF (graduate research fellow) by the academic department at .40 FTE (GTF tuition waiver, fee subsidy, and health insurance premium support for fall, winter, and spring terms to support that appointment). The $14,000 may, in full or in part, be used toward specific activities tied to the innovative career development experience or may be put, in full or in part, used toward GTF salary. The department (or research center/institute or school/college) is expected to obtain and provide funding to ensure that the total salary is equal to what that student would receive at the GTF level III, as the award recipient will have been advanced to candidacy by the time the award period commences (and must, in fact, be advanced no later than spring 2015). Up to four awards will be made.
