Working with Graduate Students

Nationally Competitive Fellowships Administered by the Financial Aid Office

The FAO takes responsibility for administering multi-year, portable, Nationally Competitive Fellowships (NCF’s) that have recipients in multiple departments in cooperation with the student’s home department.  The following fellowships have current recipients:

GFS Entries/Tables

The following aid entry tables provide amounts paid by NCFs, departments, schools or central sources and who is responsible for those entries in the Graduate Financial Support (GFS) System. These are the most common entries used for students awarded fellowships. Exceptions may be made as needed with appropriate department and FAO approval.

The tables list rates for students in receipt of a Nationally Competitive Fellowship. University Funds provide 40% of the cost of non-TGR tuition, as needed, except in formula schools. In the School of Medicine and Graduate School of Business, tuition costs not paid by NCF are covered by school funds.

A table is not included for Fulbright-Hays as there are no department entry responsibilities.  Contact the Bechtel International Center with any questions.

Budgets for current VPGE Graduate Fellows awarded a 3-year nationally competitive fellowship are arranged as a 5-year award, with the years of full SGF and SGF-NCF support reordered. For years 1, 2 and 3 of a 3-year NCF, specifically NDSEG, NSF or Hertz, fellowship is supplemented by SGF or CCSRE funds to VPGE levels of support. Full SGF or CCSRE support is provided in years 4 and 5.

Students with a dual award in the Graduate School of Education or School of Engineering with the alternate modification have SGF or CCSRE support for the first 5 years of graduate studies, less summer quarter of the fifth year, or 19 quarters.

Supplemental Funding

Students receiving full fellowships can receive and combine additional fellowships and supplemental funding if the rules of the fellowship permit. The chart below determines the order of funds used to support tuition for fellows with Vice Provost of Graduate Education (VPGE) and NCF fellowships and those with only NCF fellowships.
For AWS, University Policy allows students supported by a full fellowship to hold a supplemental teaching appointment (TA, CA) or research appointment (RA) up to 25%.  In summer, fellows may hold appointments of up to 50%.  Appointments must also comply with applicable school or local policies.
