Fellowships and funding

Fulton Schools fellowships for graduate students

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering offer a variety of fellowships to support our graduate students. For the previous academic year, we awarded nearly 400 highly competitive fellowships to master’s degree students.

We offer merit- and need-based awards that are funded by private donors, companies, community members, professional organizations, fees and the Fulton Schools.

Fellowships are available to new and continuing graduate students enrolled in Fulton Schools academic plan. New graduate students will have to be admitted into a Fulton Schools graduate program by the fellowship application deadline to be considered.

The Graduate Fellowship application opens annually on Feb. 1. The 2024–25 Graduate Fellowship application deadline has been extended to April 15, 2024.
