The funds for this fellowship are designed to attract top PhD students to our campus. These fellowships awarded by the Graduate School ($15,000 per year for 4 years) provide funds that are coupled with a departmental graduate assistantship and fee waiver to create a competitive financial package for exceptional PhD students.
