Awards & Fellowships
The Division of Graduate Studies at Kent State University administers a number of fellowships and awards for continuing students.
A fellowship is an arrangement in which financial support is given to a graduate student to pursue his or her degree without any obligation on the part of the student to engage in service. An award recognizes past achievements and meritorious performance.
- Students must be nominated by their program/department. Graduate coordinators will submit all nominations to the Division of Graduate Studies. The nomination form for each award may be found on the individual awards pages.
- All nominees are reviewed by a committee comprised of faculty representing various ranks and disciplines. Recipients are selected by the Dean of Graduate Studies.
Deadline for Nominations:
- Nominations for all fellowships and awards are due by the last Friday in the month of March. Late nominations will not be accepted.
