Each semester, a dedicated CRNCH faculty committee evaluates applications for the CRNCH PhD fellowship and selects 2-3 winners from the submitted applicants. These winners will present their work as part of the CRNCH Summit held each year in January, and they will also work towards submitting a paper based on their proposed topic in the semester after their award is made. Please check back for more information and student presentations in future semesters.
