University Fellowships

The university is proud to offer a number of merit-based fellowships to new degree-seeking graduate students. Each year, incoming graduate students who apply by the Fall Priority admissions deadline are eligible for university fellowship consideration. Among the most prestigious awards are the Trustees and Presidential Doctoral Fellowships. Both fellowships are competitive awards offered to the most outstanding doctoral students who have demonstrated excellent professional development and scholarly achievement.

The UCF Graduate McNair Fellowship is a competitive fellowship that is offered to the most outstanding undergraduate McNair scholars who are accepted into UCF graduate programs. This fellowship award is worth over $20,000 for a master's student and more than $35,000 for a doctoral student. Award recipients are selected by the UCF Graduate Fellowship Committee.

As of Fall 2008, doctoral students receiving the UCF FAMU Feeder Fellowship or the UCF Graduate RAMP Fellowship will receive a $10,000 award (plus tuition support) for up to four years from the university, while master's students will receive a $10,000 fellowship (plus tuition support) per year for up to two years.

We are also pleased to announce the availability of two AT&T Graduate Fellowships in Modeling and Simulation. These awards provide $25,000 (plus tuition support) to students engaged in their dissertation research on live simulation. Applicants for this fellowship will be currently enrolled at UCF in an accredited doctoral program, involved in (or about to be involved in) the research phase of their dissertation, and agree to full-time enrollment for the term of this fellowship. For more information, please see the AT&T Graduate Fellowship in Modeling and Simulation flyer.

In a continuing effort to support the research efforts of our graduate students, the university provides over $100,000 per academic year in travel funding to master's, specialist, and doctoral students who deliver a research paper or comparable creative activity at a professional meeting. For information about the criteria applicants for this award must meet, please see the Graduate Travel Award Application.
