Financial Assistance

Fellowships

A number of sources for fellowship support for particularly well-qualified students exist. Several federal agencies (e. g. National Science Foundation, Department of Defense) have competitive programs which usually require application early in the first-year of study. Various private institutions also fund fellowships, often in specific research areas. The University Graduate School, in addition to supplemental fellowships for entering students, sponsors a limited number of fellowships for advanced students. The Chemistry Department also awards annually several fellowships for advanced students, usually under the sponsorship of an industrial company. These may be either full fellowships or of the partial or supplemental type. Students will automatically be considered for departmental awards and the Chemistry Graduate Office will bring information concerning outside fellowships to the attention of qualified individuals whenever possible. The Chemistry Graduate Office will assist students with applications insofar as possible.
