Graduate Students

Fellowships and Scholarships

The college and its schools and departments offer a wide variety of fellowships, scholarships, and travel grants to CAS graduate students. Many are funded through generous alumni donations and memorial gifts. Funding is awarded in line with the wishes of the donors and eligibility varies from fund to fund.


The CAS graduate scholarship application closes on January 31 for the following academic year. By completing this application, you will be considered for all college-level and department/school-level scholarships for which you are eligible. Scholarship offer letters will be emailed to recipients from the CAS scholarship coordinator in mid-March to early April.

Apply today for 2020-2021!


Graduate fellowships typically support graduate student tuition and other educationally-related fees, research endeavors, travel for conference presentation, and other educationally-beneficial experiences and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

College-level fellowships are nomination-based and are awarded by our academic departments and schools in conjunction with the CAS Office of the Dean. Department- and school-level fellowships are handled internally by each department and school.

For information on what fellowships are available to you and how to apply, please contact your faculty advisor.
