University and Louis Bevier Fellowships

The School of Graduate Studies will award 13 University and Louis Bevier Dissertation Completion Fellowships for the 2017-2018 academic year. All SGS doctoral students are eligible to apply. These awards provide:

  • Stipend of $25,000
  • Health insurance (if needed)
  • Tuition remission for up to 2 research credits per semester (no more than 4 total for the academic year)

University and Louis Bevier Fellowships are designed to serve two purpose:

  • To support graduate students whose funding from other sources will not continue during the 2017-2018 academic year.
  • To enable graduate students to forego a teaching assistantship in order to concentrate fully on completing their dissertations.

These awards are reserved for students who plan to complete their degree requirements and graduate by May 2018. Fellows may not hold other full-time awards concurrently with University and Louis Bevier Fellowships.
