The Graduate Dean’s Dissertation Completion Fellowship aims to increase dissertation completion among doctoral students. This award is intended for students in their final semester of graduate education who have a realistic expectation of degree completion in the Spring semester. The award will allow students to forgo their non-research related employment obligations to concentrate on completing their dissertation.
Each college nominates students based on their demonstrated ability to complete high quality dissertation research and the assurance that the awarding of the fellowship will allow the student(s) to complete their dissertation and graduate at the end of the term.
