The KU School of Social Welfare guarantees four years of funding assistance to doctoral students in good standing. To help us with this guarantee, the KU School of Social Welfare is pleased to announce the availability of two new University of Kansas Graduate Studies Fellowships for the Fall 2013 semester.
- One first-year fellowship for a first-year doctoral student
- One first-year fellowship for a first-year underrepresented doctoral student
These two fellowships include a 9 month, $18,000 stipend and Fall/Spring tuition for up to nine credit hours. The School also guarantees 3 additional years of funding, through a GRA, GTA, or combination of the two, contingent on satisfactory performance in the program (see Financial Aid for more information on range of financial aid). The Ph.D. Admissions Committee will establish the award criteria, review applications in early February (application deadline is February 1, 2013), and inform fellowship recipients of their awards in their acceptance letters, to be mailed in mid to late February. (All those admitted will be automatically considered for the fellowships—no separate application is necessary).
