Graduate Recruitment Fellowships

The Graduate Recruitment Fellowship program is intended to assist departments in their efforts to persuade their top candidates to enroll by providing additional funding beyond a departmental assistantship.

Departments may apply for a maximum of:
  • 2 Othmer Fellowships
  • 2 Chancellor's Fellowships
  • 15 Edgren Graduate Tuition Fellowships

Once awarded, each department or interdisciplinary degree program is free to allocate the fellowships to any prospective graduate student who meets the criteria for a specific fellowship program.

Our Prospective Students section provides a detailed description of each recruitment fellowship.
