  • ExxonMobil LOFT Fellowship

    ExxonMobil, one of the world’s largest publicly traded International oil & gas companies, has partnered with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) to create fellowships in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) for Hispanic college students. Through HHF’s Latinos On Fast Track (LOFT) program, ExxonMobil seeks to nurture motivated college students across the country, with a passion for Engineering and Science.

    Selected students will be exposed to a top quality company by participating in this signature mentoring program. Each student will be paired up with one of ExxonMobil engineers/scientists to learn how their knowledge is applied in a corporate setting.

    Fellowship Components

    The Fellowship consists of five 1-hour meetings with a mentor (virtual or in person), participation in the Harvard-certified ExxonMobil mentee program (on-line), an exclusive curriculum to introduce Fellows to the organization and company career opportunities, and a $1,000 educational grant. In addition, there exists the possibility to interview for ExxonMobil positions (internships/full-time) upon successful completion of the Fellowship.

    Fellowship Requirements

    This opportunity is highly competitive and open to sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students attending a 4-year college or university.
    - Fellowship applicants with the following majors will be given priority:
    - Mechanical Engineering
    - Chemical Engineering
    - Civil Engineering
    - Electrical Engineering

    Applicants with these majors will be considered also: Computer Engineering, Chemistry, Environmental Engineering, Geology, Industrial Engineering, Material Sciences, Mathematics, Materials Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Physics

    Other Requirements:
    - Must plan to pursue a career in the fields/majors listed above

  • Graduate Assistantship- BioE, ECE, MECHSE

    Program supported by:  NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeships (IGERT) and Virginia Tech Interdisciplinary Education Program (IGEP)

    Seeking applications from prospective students with bachelor's or master's degrees in engineering or biology (or closely related fields) motivated to conduct research, think, collaborate, and solve problems at the intersection of the engineering and biological sciences.

    Trainees will study the dynamic processes that move material, momentum, and energy within, around, through, and between biological systems, from single molecules to the environment.

    Discovery, analysis, and solution of critical issues in biological transport require truly interdisciplinary researchers who are educated in both engineering and biology, who merge these perspectives, and who can communicate effectively with fellow researchers, policy makers, and the public. 

    Trainees receive:
    * $30,000 stipend
    * Full tuition, fees & health insurance(more details inside)
