Graduate Program in Acoustics



A limited number of fellowships are awarded by the Graduate School to scholastically outstanding students. Fellows may not accept employment during the period of their appointments nor are they required to render any service to the University. Fellows receive stipends that vary with the particular award and usually receive grants-in-aid for tuition. For incoming students, the graduate admission application serves as the fellowship application. The College of Engineering also has a number of fellowships, ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 per year. These are intended as supplements to research assistantships and are generally awarded to outstanding incoming Ph.D. students. In addition, the Graduate School grants Minority Graduate Scholars Awards to a limited number of qualified incoming students. Additional information about the above fellowships can be found in the Graduate Bulletin. External fellowships are also available from governmental agencies and foundations. Names of directories listing some possible sources of external funding can be found in the Graduate Bulletin, or in publications retained by the Associate Dean of research in the College of Engineering (101 Hammond Building).

Students granted fellowships should carry the same credit loads as half-time assistants. Normally, students who are making satisfactory progress will be awarded assistantships once their fellowships expire.
