Stipends and Scholarships

Faculty member in front of white board - SMThe 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 If the dean does not receive a written acceptance of the aid offer by April 15, the offer may be rescinded.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 outside the academic departments and programs.
 

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

The department or program will select nominees to forward to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Fellowships Committee by the date specified on the Distinguished Fellowships website. Guidelines for each distinguished fellowship are available on the Distinguished Fellowships website.
