Applicants who wish to be considered for fellowships or assistantships may apply by completing the appropriate section of the regular application to the Graduate School. No separate application form is required. To ensure consideration for fall semester assistantship and fellowship awards, all admissions credentials should be received by Feb.15. Admission is also possible in January.
Applicants for fellowship and assistantship support are notified by the program director(s) as soon as possible after decisions have been made. Assistantship and fellowship awards to new and continuing students are made on a competitive basis, normally for a period of one academic year. The program director(s) determine the procedures and criteria for renewal of the award in subsequent academic years.
Recipients of assistantships and fellowships must pursue a full-time program of study. The recipient's obligation to provide service in exchange for the stipend is clearly described in the letter of appointment, as is the stipend amount and other important terms and conditions of the appointment.
