    If you are awarded a 12-month GAUSSI fellowship, you will always be considered a GAUSSI fellow throughout your graduate work at Colorado State University. By accepting a fellowship you agree to and acknowledge that we will track and report to the NSF details related to your program involvement, academic achievements, and progress towards your degree. GAUSSI fellows are required to participate in all GAUSSI sponsored activities during the sponsored fellowship period, and continue to participate in all GAUSSI sponsored activities after the sponsored fellowship period. GAUSSI fellows are required to inform GAUSSI of any publications, presentations, or other research related activities that are achieved during your graduate studies at CSU. Upon graduation, fellows will notify GAUSSI of career decisions and professional achievements. If selected, you will need to acknowledge partial support from GAUSSI on any future work that is applicable to your endeavors as a fellow. Please acknowledge that you have read and understand the requirements of a GAUSSI fellow.
    In the event, you are NOT awarded a 12-month GAUSSI fellowship, would you like to be considered for supplemental financial support of your research project? GAUSSI has limited funding available to assist in collaborative research endeavours. Funds are available to supplement travel cost or to purchase needed materials to conduct research experiments. You will be asked to provide additional information on how the funds would be spent prior to an award.
