The MRC Graduate Research Assistantship Program provides funding to UMD PhD students who conduct research in the following eight areas:
Applicants must be outstanding mid-career UMD PhD students whose advisors are current members of the Maryland Robotics Center. Applicants’ research must fall into one or more of the above eight research areas. Applicants must be full-time students and be involved in ongoing research.
We recognize that strength comes through diversity and actively seek and welcome students with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities. We especially encourage women and minority candidates to apply.
Typically, the MRC Graduate Research Assistantship Program funds 2-3 PhD students per academic year with funding guaranteed for one year. Recipients receive an annual stipend, tuition, and benefits commensurate with their current appointment. Call for applications is posted on this website each spring semester.
