Graduate School Presidential Dissertation Fellowship

Posted: 3/28/2017 (Funding)

The Graduate School Presidential Dissertation award is intended to assist Ph.D. candidates in the final stages of writing and completing their dissertations. The 2017-18 Dissertation Fellowship is a one-quarter award established with support of the University President.

The purpose of these awards is to relieve graduate students of their teaching duties or other employment not directly related to the dissertation in order to devote their full time to writing the dissertation. Typically, during the tenure of the award service responsibilities are suspended.

The award must be used during the 2017-18 academic year (summer 2017 through spring 2018). The choice of the quarter will be left to the discretion of the graduate student in consultation with his or her supervisory committee chair.

More information about eligibility and applications is available below.
