Graduate fellowships are offered by the College of Graduate Studies with the goal of promoting the support of diversity in higher education. More detailed fellowship information and fellowship application materials are available on the College of Graduate Studies website ( www.grad.cmich.edu). Students who do not have access to the web may request that fellowship application materials be mailed to them by the College of Graduate Studies. Packets are available early in the fall of each year. The deadline for submission of all materials is February 6. Applications that are received after the deadline, or that are incomplete as of the deadline, will not be considered.
The fellowship is valid for one academic year, grants in-state tuition, and provides a tuition scholarship of 24 credit hours. Master's- and Specialist's-level fellowships provided an annual stipend of $10,300 in 2009-2010; the stipend for doctoral fellowships was $12,600.
Fellowship applicants must submit an official copy of a current GRE or GMAT score. In order to be certain the score reaches the College of Graduate Studies by the February 6 deadline, the GRE or GMAT must be taken no later than early December. The test scores are a critical part of the fellowship application, and applications without GRE or GMAT scores will not be considered.
Fellowships provide the full amount of financial support required for international students to receive an I-20.No additional proof of funding was required of international students with fellowships in 2008-2009.
