Graduate College Fellowship (please read update below) — The Graduate College Fellowship (GCF) is a need-based award to support new and continuing masters and doctoral students with financial need as determined by information taken from the FAFSA. The GCF is intended to support in recruitment and retention of outstanding graduate students at Arizona State University. Students can be nominated for the entire academic year or a single semester in this cycle, but must have a FAFSA on file by March 1, 2020, in order to be eligible.
- Recipients may be awarded up to $5000 per semester
IMPORTANT UPDATE: In order to better identify students with demonstrated financial need, we have updated this process. We recommend that academic units reach out to all potential and current graduate students ensuring that they complete the FAFSA by February 14, 2020 (if they have not already). The following week, the Graduate College will provide a list to each unit (via Graduate Chairs & Directors) of students who have been determined to have financial need based on their FAFSA. Units can use this list to nominate students who qualify for this funding.
If you have any questions please feel free to email the Graduate College at firstname.lastname@example.org.
