2018 Graduate Fellowships and Awards - Card -  01.jpg

Office of Graduate Fellowships and Awards

The Office of Graduate Fellowships and Awards assists current FSU students with articulating their interests and ambitions in support of identifying and applying for external fellowships, scholarships, grants, and awards. Through our holistic approach, we are able to walk alongside students throughout the entire application process, offering tailored guidance at every step along the way. We regularly offer presentations and discussions for colleges, departments, meetings, and classes. Our workshops are designed to meet students where they are, covering both the basics of applying for external funding as well as in-depth advice for specific funding opportunities. The core expression of our mission, though, is the individual support we offer to students through one-on-one meetings, custom advice, and careful review of application materials.
