This fall, the University at Buffalo, SUNY introduced a new initiative
called the PhD Excellence Initiative to strengthen the quality of students
in our PhD programs and to increase their success rates. The new scheme
includes the following components:

1. Five year funding packages;
2. Minimum salaries starting at $20,800;
3. Full tuition and fee waivers;
4. Minimum teaching obligations with teaching relief for two of the five

Top students will be nominated for a Presidential fellowship, which
increases the stipend by an additional $7,500 if awarded. Domestic students
who meet diversity criteria can also be recruited via the Schomburg
program. More information can be found on our website:

Review of applications will begin on December 1st. We are seeking
applicants in all of our research clusters: GIS, Urban and Regional
Analysis, Earth Systems Science, Economic Geography and Development, and
Health Geography.
