Current students will receive an email from the Graduate Program Coordinator or Secretary with details on the fellowship/scholarship application requirements in early November. The deadline for the applications is December 1 of every year.
Dissertation Completion Fellowships (DCF) are intended for doctoral students planning to finish writing and defending their dissertations during the semester for which they apply. DCFs are offered for each term (fall, spring, summer), with separate application deadlines for each application cycle. DCFs are available only to those who have passed their comprehensive exams prior to the end of the semester in which the DCF award is received. All applicants must schedule an interview with the Department Chair Graduate Program Coordinator after submitting the application (at least 2 days prior to the scheduled interview). Do not apply unless you and your advisor are confident that you will complete in the semester for which applied.
