Michigan Tech Fall 2018 Finishing Fellowship Nominations Open

Applications for fall 2018 finishing fellowships are now being accepted and are due no later than 4 p.m. Thursday, June 28 to Debra Charlesworth in the Graduate School. Material emailed to gradschool@mtu.edu is preferred. Instructions on the application and evaluation process can be found online.

Students are eligible if all of the following criteria are met:

  • Must be a PhD student
  • Must expect to finish during the semester supported as a finishing fellow
  • Must have submitted no more than one previous application for a finishing fellowship
  • Must be eligible for or in Research Mode at the time of application

Finishing Fellowships provide support to PhD candidates who are close to completing their degrees. These fellowships are available through the generosity of alumni and friends of the University. They are intended to recognize outstanding PhD candidates who are in need of financial support to finish their degrees and are also contributing to the attainment of goals outlined in The Michigan Tech Strategic Plan.

The Graduate School anticipates funding up to 10 fellowships with support ranging from $2,000 to full support (stipend + tuition). Students who receive full support through a Finishing Fellowship may not accept any other employment. For example, students cannot be fully supported by a Finishing Fellowship and accept support as a GTA or GRA.
