Nomination System

The GradAwards system (Step-by-step Instructions | Log in) is used to administer the Fellowship Competition. Please refer to the Fellowship Calendar for when nominations will open.

Graduate programs may only submit their allotted number of nominations for the University Fellowship competition in accordance with their nomination cap (Appendix B). The Graduate Enrichment program does not have nomination caps. The total number of nominees for College-Allotted Fellowships (CAFs) are determined for each College by the Graduate School based on the average of the last five years of UF and GE awards by headcount, including College-Allotted Fellowships. The number of CAFs allotted to each program is determined by the College (Section 9.1).

Graduate programs must nominate each nominee for the correct competition (e.g. UF, GE, EA, etc.) in the nomination system by the listed deadline in the Fellowship Calendar.
