GSAS Stipends and Scholarships

Faculty member in front of white board - SM
The dean determines which students receive funding upon the recommendations of academic departments/programs as well as the Distinguished Fellowships Committee. In accordance with the guidelines of the Council of Graduate Schools, students are notified of financial awards by April 1, and must reply by April 15. If the dean does not receive a written acceptance of the aid offer by April 15, the offer may be rescinded. In consultation with academic departments, the dean also assigns students to assistantship assignments within and outside the academic departments and programs.

Students who wish to be considered for distinguished fellowship awards (see the GSAS Academic Policies and Procedures Guidebook) must complete the Distinguished Fellowships Application and submit by the date specified on the web page (usually in early to mid-January).

Guidelines for each distinguished fellowship are available on the Distinguished Fellowships website.
