Spring 2014 Research Fellowship Program seeking candidates

The College of Graduate and Professional Studies has announced a Research Fellowship Program for Spring 2014.

Ten selected graduate students will be awarded a 20-hour per week spring fellowship, including payment of five in-state graduate credits and a $4,500 stipend. Full-time graduate students who receive no other funding from any campus offices are eligible, said Laura Jacobsen, incoming interim associate dean.

"It is important and always exciting to help students get more deeply involved in research, either individually or with a faculty mentor," she said. "In this way, we can help graduate students move forward academically and financially."

Jacobsen said graduate program coordinators are recommending candidates for the program now to the Graduate College. For consideration, individual graduate students who are interested in, or are currently engaged, in projects with a faculty mentor, should immediately contact the program coordinator for their discipline.

Interested graduate students should provide:

  • candidate's name, program and concentration
  • a brief description (1-2 paragraphs) of their proposed or ongoing research or creative project and the anticipated scholarly outcome
  • name and position of the faculty member who would supervise the Research Fellowship
  • additional information that may be of relevance

Jacobsen said the Graduate College hopes to make the awards and extend Graduate Fellowship agreement letters to the selected candidates by Friday, Dec. 20.
