All interested students, including international students, are considered for fellowship points and named scholarships. Approximately 35% of Master’s students receive a form of fellowship from the department.
Applying students are considered for departmental aid if they check the appropriate box on the application. All returning Master's students must submit a departmental Fellowship form in Early February for consideration for monies for the forthcoming academic year. The form is available each year beginning in January through the due date in February. Please consult the departmental calendar for the specific date.
A fellowship point will pay for one point/credit of tuition. Awards are generally made in clusters of fellowship points (i.e. 4, 8, 12 points etc.). There are approximately 20 - 25 fellowship point awards given each year.
Fellowship points cannot be used to pay registration fees or outstanding bursar arrears.
