Graduate College Summer Fellowships

The Graduate College is pleased to announce the 2014 Graduate College Summer Fellowship program for advanced doctoral students. The fellowship is intended to facilitate completion of the doctoral degree in a timely manner. Students who will have completed their comprehensive examinations by the end of the Fall 2013 term are eligible to apply for the fellowship. Previous Graduate College Summer Fellowship recipients, Ballard and Seashore Fellowship recipients, Presidential Graduate Fellowship recipients and Deans Graduate Fellowship recipients are not eligible. This fellowship cannot be used in combination with any other source of summer support (fellowship/scholarship, grant, graduate assistantship).

Graduate College Summer Fellowship winners will receive a $3,000 summer stipend plus tuition only (at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences rate) for up to 2 credit hours.

Awards will be based on consideration of the student’s plans for use of the fellowship summer, the student’s progress towards the doctoral degree, evaluation of the student’s academic record, and a letter of recommendation from the student’s dissertation advisor. Priority will be given to students who received appointments as teaching assistants in academic year 2013-2014. Award winners will be required to report how they used the funds by Friday, August 15, 2014.

The deadline for applications is Friday, March 7, 2014.

Students will be notified of funding decisions by Friday, March 28, 2014.

Applications are to be completed and submitted via this online form.
