Summer Fellowships Update 8-May-2020
 
In mid-March, EVC/Provost Carter announced a new type of summer fellowship to support doctoral students engaging in scholarship, research and creative work toward their degrees.
 
The fellowships will be awarded by the IDP, department or school in which each student is enrolled. The process for making these awards is under way. You do not need to complete an application or be nominated, but you may be asked some basic questions about the summer funding you have already been awarded or that is pending. If you receive such a query, please respond without delay. Doing so will serve to confirm your interest in being considered for these summer fellowships and will help programs make their award decisions as quickly as possible.
 
Decisions will be communicated by early June. Please check this site for general updates,and follow the links below or search here for information about other funding opportunities.
