The School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning (SGSUP) invites applications for the SGSUP Nexus Research Fellowship (SNRF) award to exceptional young scholars. The mission of the highly competitive SNRF award is to recruit and support outstanding students for their pursuit of a PhD degree with research that centers upon existing strengths within SGSUP and is focused on solving some of the world’s most pressing challenges. The SNRF award aims to foster synergistic collaborations with SGSUP’s diverse faculty and supports a transdisciplinary vision that will ideally cultivate partnerships with industry, government, and/or NGOs. Successful project proposals will address at least one pressing challenge at the intersection of SGSUP’s key research themes. For the 2020-2021 academic year, one Fellowship will be awarded.
SNRF award will include: a full tuition award and health insurance, a stipend of $25,000 in Year 1, (which may include RA or TA duties), a discretionary research expense allowance (for travel, data, consumables, etc.) of $1500 in Year 1, and honorary membership to the academic association of the student’s choice.

Each fellow is personally responsible for individual taxes related to this award. Additional information regarding tax issues related to awards can be found at tax considerations. Specific questions should be directed to a tax advisor or contact the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.
An "overaward" is when a student’s need based awards exceed his/her financial need, or the total of the awards exceeds the cost of attendance. If a student has been overawarded, federal regulations require ASU to adjust his/her awards which may result in a reduction in awards or a bill. Need based aid include grants, scholarships, Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loans, and outside resources (i.e. faculty/staff tuition benefits, scholarships, stipends, etc.). Non-need based aid includes unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, Federal Graduate PLUS Loans and Private Education Loans. Questions regarding overawards should be directed to the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.
