Senior Teaching Fellowship
(Due: January 20, 2017)
The Senior Teaching Fellowship is designed for the student who has already completed a teaching fellowship within his or her department and has demonstrated effective teaching skills. 
 
The student’s application must include evidence of this effectiveness as provided by teaching evaluations (SEEQ) and a letter from his or her teaching mentor. For updated stipend rates, please see Stipends and Scholarships.
 
Alumni Dissertation Fellowship
(Due: January 20, 2017)
The Alumni Dissertation Fellowship is the final award an excellent doctoral candidate would receive.  The student may apply for this award only after the department has accepted the proposal and the dean has approved the dissertation title and committee.
 
The fellowship allows the student to devote full-time work to the dissertation and is meant to enable him or her to complete it during the fellowship year. For updated stipend rates, please see Stipends and Scholarships.
 
Summer Fellowship
(Due: February 17, 2017) 
The Summer Fellowship provides support to students who wish to devote the summer to work on proposals to apply for prestigious fellowships.  In disseminating these awards, the highest priority will be given to summer projects designed to prepare a student to apply for prestigious fellowships, and to improve a student’s professional credentials (beyond the normal expectation of the program).
 
Recipients of the fellowship are required to present papers at the annual Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Student Research Weekend.  Any doctoral or masters student may apply, regardless of whether he or she has been nominated for one of the larger awards. For updated stipend rates, please see Stipends and Scholarships.
