University of Maryland Graduate School Fellowships
Graduate School Fellowships 2017-2018
The University of Maryland Graduate School fellowships are merit-based awards for current University of Maryland graduate students that enable recipient to focus on graduate study, that do not have to be repaid, and that generally include both a stipend and tuition remission. Graduate School fellowships differ from graduate assistantships, which carry an obligation to each class, to work on a research project, or to perform administrative tasks.
If you are interested in applying for any Graduate School fellowships, please read the information below. The Graduate School's fellowship webpage has additional details.
Ann G. Wylie Dissertation Fellowship
The Wylie Fellowship is a $15,000 one-semester fellowship to support outstanding doctoral students who are in the final stages of writing their dissertations. Detailed information about the fellowship, including nomination packet requirements, is available on the Wylie Dissertation Fellowship guidelines. Our department may nominate only two students.
The department's nominees will also automatically be considered for the Lee Thornton Dissertation Fellowship. The Thornton Fellowship recognizes dissertation work that serves the public good and confers the same benefits as the Wylie.
