The Graduate School Fellowship program (GSF) represents the most prestigious graduate student award available at the University. Funded at nationally competitive levels, these highly desirable awards support students in all programs and departments of the University awarding a Ph.D. or MFA.
To ensure that Graduate School Fellows receive every opportunity to succeed, the GSF will provide at least a full four years of support through a nationally competitive stipend and tuition waiver for qualifying students in PhD programs. The MFA awards are for at least two years for students in MFA programs. Most Graduate School Fellows will receive both research and teaching assignments.
The University expects Graduate School Fellows to demonstrate high standards of academic achievement and active participation in university life. Applicants for the GSF apply through the departments or programs of their major field of study. Successful applicants will have outstanding undergraduate preparation, a strong commitment to their field of study, and demonstrated potential in research and creative activities.
