Department Fellowships

The Department offers a number of fellowships each year. Award recipients are determined by the Fellowships & Scholarships committee. Each year’s F&S committee has discretion to decide the kinds of awards it will offer, the number available, their value, and the qualifications necessary to apply. Its decisions depend largely on the financial condition of the trust funds and on current student needs.  

For Prospective and Incoming Graduate Students

Departmental Multi-Year Aid Packages
 The packages provide four to five years of guaranteed aid to a select number of incoming graduate students. Two years of support are in the form of a University Fellowship; the remainder may take the form of departmental fellowships, assistantships, or external fellowships.

As of May 2014, the department generally accepts only those students to whom it can offer a multi-year guarantee of support. These guarantees may vary by funding source, field, and other circumstances, and they are contingent on satisfactory progress and performance. Applicants with access to external resources that can support their graduate study should provide details in the online application.

Deadline:  December 1

For Current Graduate Students

Departmental Fellowships
These one-semester awards are given to students in two categories: dissertators and pre-dissertators. Departmental fellowships provide stipends and tuition payment plus eligibility to enroll in a University health insurance plan. The number of these depends on the availability of funds and on approval from the Graduate School.
