The UA Graduate College's Graduate Access Fellowship is intended to broaden the access of U.S. students to graduate education and to promote the diversity of our graduate student body. Eligibility for these fellowships is restricted to incoming domestic graduate students who are newly admitted for summer 2017, fall 2017, or spring 2018 terms and who have shown academic achievement despite facing challenging social, economic or educational obstacles. Each fellowship provides up to $4,000 to students admitted to a Master's program or $8,000 to those admitted to the PhD. The latter includes PhD-bound master's students in programs that require completion of the Master's before admission to the PhD, those pursuing an MFA requiring a minimum of 60 units, and those pursuing an MLA. UA Online students and Accelerated Master's Program (AMP) students are not eligible to apply. Graduate Access Fellowships may be supplemented by other financial support provided by the academic program. Awards are dependent upon the availability of funding and are limited to 4 awards per academic program.
