Graduate Fellowships Introduction
Section 10.0 of the Graduate School Handbook
A graduate fellowship is a financial award made by the university or an external agency directly to a graduate student to provide support during a portion of the graduate degree program. Fellows are typically selected on the basis of academic or performance merit criterion through a university-wide or a national competition, without respect to financial need. Graduate fellows cannot be required to perform a service in return for receiving a stipend.
