College of Fine Arts Graduate Research Excellence Fellowship

The College of Fine Arts Graduate Research Excellence Fellowship complements the Graduate School's Graduate Research Fellowship. Both fellowships are given on a competitive basis to provide an outstanding graduate student with an opportunity for full-time creative and/or scholarly research, usually designed to complete a dissertation or thesis projects. To be considered for the CFA Fellowship, the Department/School must first nominate the graduate student for the Graduate School's Graduate Research Fellowship. If the Department/School's candidate(s) are unsuccessful at the campus level, the unit may submit one graduate student's application to the CFA for consideration.
