The School of Graduate Studies offers multiple competitive funding programs to support both incoming doctoral students as well as those completing their degrees.
For incoming students, we provide a robust portfolio of fellowships to broaden participation in our graduate programs and promote the success of students who come from diverse backgrounds. To learn more about these opportunities for incoming students including the Dean’s Fellowships to Broaden Participation, SUPER-Grad, and Bridge to the Doctorate Fellowships, click here. Continuing support may be available for students from diverse backgrounds through SGS membership in various consortia or supplements to faculty grants. Click here for examples.
To support current doctoral students with the completion of their degree, the Off-Campus Dissertation Development grant program (currently suspended due to COVID-19) provides summer support for dissertation work and the University and Bevier Fellowship provides funding for the completion of the dissertation. Both programs are highly competitive. Students apply for each program separately. All applications are reviewed by the applicant’s graduate program and the SGS multidisciplinary review committee.
