Graduate Council fellowships are available for exceptionally qualified incoming doctoral students. These fellowships are available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents only. GCF candidates are nominated by their respective graduate program. The Graduate Council Fellowships and Awards Committee reviews and ranks candidate files. Typically, 45 fellowships are awarded each academic year; each fellowship is renewable for up to five years.
Typically, a Graduate Council fellowship supplements the program’s offer of support with a $50,000 fellowship (over the five-year support period). These awards also provide a full tuition scholarship and subsidized health insurance coverage.
