Fellowships are awarded to a limited number of graduate students in good academic standing who are admitted to a program of study leading to a doctoral degree and to certain programs at the master’s level. Awards are made primarily on the basis of the academic achievement and potential of the student as a degree candidate. Credentials including transcripts of all previous academic work, scores on national or local exams, experience related to the field of study, and evaluations by former teachers, advisors or employers are used in determining the awards. Selections are made on a competitive basis without regard to race, creed, sex or national origin and are generally announced in mid-May for the following fall. Award amounts are determined by the individual program area.
Students desiring a listing of programs offering graduate assistantships, fellowships and scholarships are referred to the graduate school website or the program area of their interest.
