Graduate School Diversity Recruitment Fellowships

Scholarship Description
Description Graduate School Diversity Recruitment Fellowships are intended help promote a diverse graduate student body at The University of Texas at Austin. This competitive fellowship program is for incoming students and is open to anyone applying to a master's or doctoral program at The University of Texas at Austin. Student must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Consistent with the criteria set out in the Graduate School's admission policy, selection for this fellowship will be based on a holistic review of the student's file. Students are nominated by the graduate adviser of the program for which the student is applying for admission. The nomination must demonstrate: * the outstanding academic credentials of the student, and * how the student might contribute to, or benefit from, the diverse educational environment of that program. Nominations that include provisions to leverage this one-year fellowship with subsequent support (TA, AI, GRA, or departmental fellowship) in the second and/or third year of study will be given the highest consideration. To retain a Graduate School Diversity Recruitment Fellowship, students must register for a minimum of nine credit hours each long semester (fall and spring), must maintain a 3.0 grade point average, and make satisfactory progress towards the degree. Stipend The total award for the Graduate School Diversity Recruitment Fellowship is between $19,000 and $20,000 for nine months. This includes a $12,000 stipend for nine-months, plus a supplement for medical insurance (currently $1108) and Tuition Benefit Assistance (currently $3,012 per semester) applied toward required tuition and fees. Nomination Process / Deadlines Students must be nominated for these awards by their graduate adviser. There is no deadline per se for Graduate School Recruitment Fellowships, but all nominations should be submitted by March 3, 2008. These applications will be reviewed quickly by an internal panel within the Graduate School to verify the applicant's merit for the award, so that an award letter can be processed in conjunction with the letter to admit. Nominations can be forwarded for review prior to the departmental admissions deadline. A complete nomination includes: * Signed copy of the Nomination Cover Sheet * Award form * Copy of Application for Admissions * Student's personal statement in 500 words or less * Letters of recommendation * Copy of the student's transcript Questions may be directed to Dr. Marvin Hackert, Associate Dean (512-232-3604; m.hackert@mail.utexas.edu) or Mary Alice Davila, Associate Fellowship Manager (512-232-3603; madavila@mail.utexas.edu). Submit all nomination materials to: Mary Alice Davila, Associate Fellowship Coordinator, Graduate School, The University of Texas at Austin, Main Building 101, G0400, Austin, TX 78712-0531.
