Fellowships and Awards

Fellowships and Traineeships

Approximately 206 outstanding graduate students hold fellowships or traineeships at Clemson University. In order for a monetary award to be designated a fellowship or a traineeship, it must provide the recipient a minimum of $1,000 for the academic year. These awards, received from a variety of alumni, foundation, governmental, individual or industrial sources, require no services. All fellowship recipients are granted the in-state rate for tuition and fees. Payment in excess of actual educational costs is subject to federal and state taxes.

Graduate Alumni Fellowships, R.C. Edwards Fellowships and George R. MacDonald Fellowships are University-wide awards administered by the Graduate School. The Graduate Diversity Award is administered by the Chief Diversity Office. Fellowships are made on a competitive basis to nominees selected by the departments. Scholarly potential and academic excellence are the sole criteria for the awards.

Another fellowship, the Diversity Fellowship, is administered by the Graduate School and the office of Access and Equity. Funding is available for eligible minority students pursuing graduate education. Detailed application information is available in the office of Access and Equity.

Additional fellowships and traineeships are administered by the individual colleges and departments. Some awards may limit the student's research to areas of interest to the donor. Detailed information is available in the colleges or departments.

Unless otherwise stipulated by the grantor and/or donor, holders of fellowships or traineeships are required to enroll in the same minimum credit load as is applicable to departmental graduate assistants. Continued receipt of any fellowship or traineeship is contingent on the student's maintaining a satisfactory academic status. Normally a student cannot hold concurrently two or more fellowships or traineeships (or the equivalent thereof) administered by the University, regardless of the funding sources. Fellowship recipients are eligible for appointment as departmental graduate assistants.

Fellowships and traineeships usually are offered in early March. Inquiries may be made to the department of the student's major interest or to the Graduate School.
