Fellowships are a resourced based way to provide financial assistance to graduate students at various stages of their collegiate career. Some may involve research activities, funding for your research activities, or participation as an intern or researcher. Applications may vary from different fellowship applications, and not all fellowships can be awarded to Non-US citizens. Deadlines may be passed for Spring 2016 on some fellowships.

For information about assistantships, please visit the MSU Graduate Website.
