Graduate School Fellowship Fund

All students enrolled in UMD graduate programs are eligible for fellowships and awards, though doctoral students are the main recipients. Funds support students during different stages of a student’s doctoral program, from recruiting top applicants, to supporting summer research or research travel, to facilitating the completion of the dissertation and recognizing exceptional accomplishments.

Small contributions can have a major impact on a student’s graduate experience.  A contribution of $200 can fund fieldwork, data collection, travel, or an archival visit.  Contributions of $500 to $800 can allow a graduate student to attend a professional conference and give them a chance to present their work and/or network with colleagues. Support in the amount of $5000 can allow a PhD student to do their own research in the summer.
