Awards & Fellowships

The Graduate College at Kent State University administers a number of fellowships and awards for new and continuing students.  

A University Fellowship is an arrangement in which financial support is given to a graduate student to pursue his or her degree without any obligation on the part of the student to engage in service. A scholarship recognizes past achievements and meritorious performance.
