Fellowships and Training Programs

Fellowships and Traineeships are excellent mechanisms of support for graduate students.  They generally provide one or two years of stipend and usually tuition, they often provide additional funds for travel and other expenditures, they allow the fellow or trainee to participate in a community of scholars, and they are prestigious.  The Graduate School at OSU grants fellowships to outstanding applicants as well as dissertation-year fellowships for the very best students at the university.  Traning programs are mostly for first to third year students and are either offered as part of the admissions package or can result from nominations from training faculty in the program. Other intramural and extramural fellowships typically prodivde mid-career to dissertation year support. Some mechanisms are restricted to U.S. citizens (and sometimes Permanent Residents), and also some mechanisms are targeted as specific groups.
