Applicants applying only for fellowships must check the appropriate box on the application for admission and complete the admission file by January 15. The number of fellowships is limited, and all applicants are strongly urged also to apply for tuition scholarships and loans.
Teaching fellowships are available in the departments of biological sciences, exercise and sport studies, and dance. For the academic year 2015-16, the stipend is $13,710 for an M.S. fellow and $6,855 for an M.F.A. fellow. Teaching fellows also receive assistance to reduce or eliminate tuition expenses.
Research fellowships are granted for work in various science departments as funds become available; stipends vary in accordance with the nature and length of the appointment. During the academic year the research fellow usually carries a half-time graduate program.
The teaching and research fellowships are of particular value to students who are interested in further study or research, since they combine fellowship aid with practical experience and an opportunity to gain competence in a special field of study. In accepting one of these appointments, the student agrees to remain for its duration.
