Graham Endowed Fellowship
The Graham Endowed Fellowship fund is used to give Penn State a competitive advantage in recruiting outstanding graduate students. The fund provides supplementation awards of up to $4,000 for first year of study to highly recruited students who are given assistantships, departmental fellowships, or who are recipients of external assistantships or fellowships. If justification is provided, two-year awards may be awarded. The Graduate School's University Graduate Fellowships and Bunton-Waller Graduate Awards Program and the GEM master's program are not eligible for Graham Endowed Fellowship supplementation.
Departments must work with their associate deans for research to select their most competitive incoming students. The nominating department must provide an assistantship or a full fellowship or the student must have an external fellowship (not from the Graduate School) that allows supplementation.
Graham recipients are selected at the college level. Interested prospective students should contact their graduate programs for details about the college's awarding deadline, requirements, and procedures.
