Graduate Studies



The College of Arts and Sciences and its schools and departments offer fellowships to graduate students. Most of the donated funds reside in the individual departments of the college.

Awards of fellowships follow the wishes of the donors, and thus student eligibility varies from fund to fund.

In addition to named or memorial fellowships, general donated funds are often used to provide fellowship opportunities for graduate students.

Some fellowships and research assistantships can be awarded to self-identified underrepresented minority students. Grant-supported intern opportunities, such as the NIH Biotechnology Training Program, are also available in some areas.

Application inquiries should be directed to the appropriate academic unit.
