University Scholarships and Fellowships


University Scholarships and Fellowships

Fellowships and graduate scholarships of various kinds are available to new as well as to continuing graduate students. In general, citizens of the United States and permanent resident aliens are eligible for these awards.

Teaching Assistantships: Teaching assistantships are available through the departments teaching the specified undergraduate courses.  The Animal Science Department has a large number of teaching assistantships during the fall and winter quarters.  However, individual graduate student backgrounds vary and serving as a teaching assistant in courses offered by Biological Sciences will fit some students better.  Individual departments have different application forms and deadlines.  The Animal Science form is available and the priority deadline is March 1.

Department of Animal Science Fellowships: Students whose major professor is a faculty member in the Department of Animal Science are eligible to apply for department fellowships.  The application process is to provide a printed copy of the completed continuing student university fellowship application (which is due December 1) to the department assistant (Graduate Program Coordinator) also by December 1.  Most department fellowships are used to fund students during summer months.

The continuing student fellowship application deadline is December 1 for awards beginning the following Fall quarter.

The incoming student fellowship application deadline is January 15 each year for students entering the following Fall.
