Fellowships are outright grants for study and research. Most do not require you to perform any work or service in return for the award. Some examples of well-known fellowships are listed below. Many of these awards require institutional support from a faculty mentor and the Graduate Fellowships Committee.
Make an appointment with the Fellowships and Scholarships Office for more information.
