GAANN Programs

Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) provides fellowships to assist graduate students with excellent records who demonstrate financial need and plan to pursue the highest degree available in their course study in a field designated as an area of national need. GAANN grants are funded by the Department of Education.

Drexel University's Department of Materials Science and Engineering currently hosts one active GAANN fellowship program:


    Provides education for the next generation of scientists and engineers who will be trained in materials science and engineering with a focus on synthetic biomaterials for medical devices, drug delivery for controlled release of pharmaceuticals, molecular engineering for tissue restoration, and tissue scaffolds for 3-D cellular engineering.
