EDGES Graduate Fellowship

The EDGES program in the College of Science seeks to increase success for graduate students in STEM fields, to enrich the academic environment for the campus community, and to broaden the STEM workforce.

This program aims to recruit, retain, and promote the success of outstanding doctoral students who have the potential to enhance their academic fields and departments through their unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. This award is open to incoming graduate students and is active for five years or until the student graduates. EDGES Fellows receive a monetary award (up to $10,000 per fellow) and participate in supported cohort-based activities. Activities include professional development events, panel discussions, peer mentoring, and social activities.

Application is closed.

 

Monetary awards are divided into two allocations:

  1. An up-front disbursement of 50% of the award amount to assist with a student’s transition to graduate school, and
  2. A second allocation of 50% of the award amount that can be drawn on for research and professional development (RPD) expenses. The RPD funds can be spent any time during the award period.
