Each eligible department in the Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences may nominate one student per fellowship. Preference will be given to recruiting outstanding incoming students who have not received fellowship support from the campus. Additional eligibility guidelines are included in the fellowship descriptions below.
For graduate study, universities support students through fellowships, teaching appointments, research assistant positions, or a combination of these sources. The monies available are often dependent on the size of departments' and schools' endowments and resources that may be available through the Graduate Division. Each school or department has its own methods of distributing fellowship funds. Keep in mind that little funding is usually available for terminal master's degree students.
