Graduate Research Fellowship Competition

The School of Graduate Studies holds a Graduate Research Fellowship Competition each year for full-time graduates students working towards the master's degree or sixth year diploma program. Each fellowship award is in the amount of $8,000.

Applications require departmental nomination, sponsorship by a member of the graduate faculty who will serve as a research advisor, and must be associated with scholarly research of a quality that can be submitted for refereed publication or in a refereed creative activity appropriate to the academic discipline.

Consideration for a Graduate Research Fellowship is contingent upon 1) acceptance to a master's degree or sixth year program, 2) enrollment as a full-time student, 3) a complete Fellowship application, 4) sponsorship by a member of the graduate faculty, and 5) nomination by a graduate degree program at SCSU. Applicants should have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.4 for their undergraduate work. In addition, applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 for all completed graduate work, if any.

Awards are made by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. It is understood that students will not hold other university-supported positions (such as graduate assistant, teaching assistant, or adjunct faculty) while holding the award of Graduate Research Fellow.

At the conclusion of each year, fellows deliver oral presentations summarizing their research at the Annual Graduate Research Symposium. You may view the presentations of the Fellows by clicking below.
