Post-Graduation Research Fellowship

The Post-Graduation Research Fellowship at NYU Abu Dhabi is designed to support a select cohort of exceptional NYUAD graduating seniors with a demonstrated interest in academia, by providing a competitive opportunity for a prestigious one-year research fellowship at NYUAD. The research fellowship aims to retain outstanding academic talent within the region, and contribute to the growth and development of research in the UAE. It is an excellent opportunity for NYUAD senior students to explore research directions and graduate school possibilities.

Senior students who meet the eligibility criteria are invited to submit a research proposal, outlining details of their intended research project, including anticipated research activities, a timeline, and specific milestones. This must be supported by a cover letter detailing the student’s interest and enthusiasm for a career in academia, as well as a recommendation letter from the supervising faculty.
