The Division of Graduate Studies at Kent State University administers a limited 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. Read descriptions and criteria for available fellowships and awards.
