A primary goal of the Northwestern University Transportation Center is to promote academic excellence and research quality among its transportation students involved in graduate programs across campus. In support of this commitment, each year NUTC offers a number of Dissertation Year Fellowships to outstanding PhD candidates conducting thesis research on transportation, logistics, or supply-chain topics. Dissertation Year Fellowships include full or partial funding to cover three quarters of tuition and a stipend for selected students during their final year of study.
