Fellowships and Funding

College of Arts and Sciences awards

The college and its schools and departments offer a wide variety of fellowships to graduate students.

Named fellowships include the Boeing Company Graduate Fellowship in Environmental Science, the Herbert L. Eastlick Distinguished Graduate Fellowship, and many more.

Named fellowships are awarded in line with the wishes of the donors and 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.
