Graduate Office Fellowship Funds
Approximately $2.1 million in Graduate Office Fellowship (GOF) funds are available through the thirteen colleges with graduate programs. The Associate Dean for Graduate Education of each college decides how these funds are dispersed. A number of different models are used. Please consult your program's Graduate Director for more information.
The Graduate School Dissertation Completion Fellowships
Twenty fellowships are available annually to allow students to devote full time to writing the dissertation with the goal that the dissertation will be completed during the tenure of the fellowship. Other MSU financial support, held simultaneously with the fellowship, cannot exceed a one-quarter time assistantship or the equivalent.
Selection of fellowship winners will be made by a student's college. The colleges will set the conditions and application procedures for the Graduate School Dissertation Fellowships and will notify the Graduate School of the winners. The Fellowship awards will be dispensed by the Graduate School. Students should contact the associate dean's office of their college to find out their college's procedure.
