Fellowships

Endowed fellowships are an excellent means of attracting high-performing graduate students. These students, in turn, make major contributions to the university’s research efforts. Fund income from this type of endowment is used to help support these research projects and, in many cases, to provide a small stipend to support the graduate student. As graduate students, these individuals have already matriculated well into their academic careers and many have already incurred substantial debt in financing their education. A number of schools within our institution are finding it increasingly difficult to attract top students to these important research positions without the resource of endowments. As of January 1, 2015, a $100,000 gift is required for a faculty fellowship endowment and a $25,000 gift is required to establish a graduate fellowship endowment.
