GSGC (GSU) Fellowships

The Georgia Space Grant Consortium provides fellowships to PhD students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Georgia State University. Students conduct much of their research work at the GSU Center for High Angular Resolution Astronomy Array at Mount Wilson Observatory in southern California. The CHARA Array is the only instrument in the world powerful enough to make measurements for research that the students conduct.
