University Graduate Fellowships

Departments may apply for University Graduate Fellowships (UGFs) to support their efforts to recruit and progress doctoral students towards a degree. 

Fellows are appointed as Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs), and receive up to nine hours of tuition, course, and technology fees sponsored. The standard GRA stipend is $16,000, and tuition support averages around $7,500, bringing the average total fellowship package to $24,000.
