Graduate School Fellowships for the 2019-2020 Academic Year

Published November 6, 2018

FSU sealThis memorandum highlights information, instructions, and deadlines for the Fellowships administered by the Graduate School for the 2019-2020 academic year.  It is very important that you read this entire memorandum because it outlines the fellowship application system the Graduate School has developed for certain fellowships which will begin accepting applications today.  The fellowship application system has several deadlines, some of which are for the department (or an academic representative) and some that are applicable to the student.

The complete list of our 2019-2020 fellowships and their guidelines as well as the summary of awards and deadlines may be found on the following website.  Please refer to the guidelines for specific instructions.

General Items Regarding the Fellowship Application System

  1. Academic units are entitled to establish their own process for identifying and nominating students for fellowships administered by the Graduate School.  The Graduate School encourages and directs students to contact their academic units if they are interested in seeking a nomination;
  2. The system has an automated workflow built in so the person responsible for the next step in the process will receive a system-generated email prompting them to take action;
  3. Recipients of the workflow emails should read the entire email and corresponding instructions prior to clicking on the specialized URL to begin working on their piece of the application;
  4. Each component of the online system must be completed during the same session in which the person begins working.  Please have all of the necessary information compiled before clicking on the URL and working on the application component.
  5. You may not fill out a duplicate portion of the application component and submit it twice for the same student on the same fellowship.
  6. Once an application has been submitted it cannot be edited.
  7. Should you not be able to complete a component (nomination, endorsement, etc.) at the time you click on the URL, close out of the web browser without submitting, and re-start the process once you have all of the required components.
