Scholarships and Fellowships

Fellowships, Assistantships, and Financial Aid for Minorities and Women

In addition to the general sources of support for graduate students, there are some special opportunities for minorities and women. Many of these are listed below.

Application for admission and application for financial awards are two different processes, often with different deadlines. Graduate students need to make a specific application for each award they seek. Students should begin the process of seeking financial assistance at least one year prior to the date they wish to begin a graduate program. Almost all fellowship and assistantship programs require the GRE, GMAT, or LSAT; the appropriate test should be scheduled so that scores will be available prior to the application deadline.

For more information please contact the Office of Graduate Studies or the director of graduate studies of your program.

Administered through the African American Studies Program
