The Josephine de Karman Fellowship Trust was established in 1954 by the late Dr. Theodore von Karman, world renowned aeronautics expert and teacher and first director of the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, in memory of his sister, Josephine, who died in 1951. The purpose of this fellowship program is to recognize and assist students whose scholastic achievements reflect professor von Karman's high standards.
DeKarman fellowships are open to students in any discipline, including international students, who are currently enrolled
in a university or college located within the United States and will complete their undergraduate or doctoral program requirements in the next academic year
Postdoctoral and masters degree students are not eligible for consideration. Special consideration will be given to applicants in the Humanities.
This is a highly competitive award. Strong applicants will have outstanding letters of recommendation, a strong academic achievement, and a compelling record of original research, scholarship, and/or publications.
