Fellowship Overview

Each year approximately fifteen entering doctoral and master's students are named Deans' Fellows, in recognition of outstanding performance in undergraduate studies and notable promise in graduate studies and professional life. Deans' Fellowships are open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents in any division of the Graduate School who are first-generation, low-income college students; have joined at least one affinity group associated with an underrepresented minority; or have graduated from historically black colleges or universities, hispanic serving institutions, or tribal colleges or universities. Participants in Ronald E. McNair programs across the United States will automatically satisfy these eligibility requirements. Deans' Fellows receive stipends that are significantly higher than the standard University stipend. Doctoral students named Deans' Fellows receive a 12-month $34,875 to $40,000 stipend; master's students receive a 9-month $20,000 stipend. Tuition scholarship support varies by program, and is awarded by the program.
