  • This Task has been designed for use by all roles. For all roles
Departments and programs are invited to submit names and dossiers of their nominees to the Office of Graduate and Professional Education where a faculty review committee determines the selection of scholars. Nominations are open to both newly admitted students and graduate students currently enrolled who are U.S. citizens or permanent resident immigrants. Awards are competitive and are based on many criteria including evidence of academic merit and academic achievement; cultural status(Black Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, American Asians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders); physical disabilities; and/or need as determined by federal income guidelines (FAFSA). The University Graduate Scholars award may be administered either as a graduate fellowship or as a graduate assistantship. Awards are granted for one year. Students may be nominated for the award in subsequent years but may receive a maximum of two years of funding in this program.
