A limited number of Doctoral Fellowship (DF) and University
Doctoral Fellowship (UDF) awards are available to qualified
students. Fellowship offers are made at the time of admission
and are renewable through a second year of study dependent on
satisfactory academic and work performance. Fellowship support may
be continued through at least a third year of study on a half-time
fellowship basis depending on funding availability.
Doctoral Fellowship and University Doctoral Fellowship awards
require up to 18 hours of weekly service as a research assistant
and provide a stipend of approximately $8,000 for the academic year
and a full tuition waiver for the Fall and Spring semesters.
University Doctoral Fellowship (UDF) are first-year only awards
that convert to a Doctoral Fellowship award in the second year of
study. The UDF award increases the level of fellowship
support to include a tuition waiver for six additional credits in
the summer following the first year of study. Half-time
doctoral fellowships provide half as much support and require up to
nine hours of service as a research assistant. A limited
number of Minority Student Scholarships are also available to
qualified minority students and offer a full tuition waiver for the
Fall and Spring semesters with no additional work requirement.
Additional information concerning other types of financial aid and
scholarship awards is contained in the Graduate Bulletin.
