Applying for Scholarships & Fellowships
Fellowships and Awards
Fellowships, awarded to both new and continuing graduate students, generally require no service from the recipient. Award amounts vary; some fellowships provide for payment of tuition and required fees in addition to the stipend.
Students must be nominated by a graduate advisor to receive fellowships administered by the Graduate School.
Teaching and research assistantships provide valuable experience and financial support for graduate students, who assist faculty members in teaching undergraduate classes or in their research. For students who are unable to find academic positions, employment opportunities also exist both within and outside the university.
