SUNY Graduate Diversity Fellowship Program

The Graduate Diversity Fellowship Program is a SUNY-wide initiative that offers fellowships to students who have been admitted to graduate or professional study. This program is intended to assist in the recruitment, enrollment and retention of students in doctoral and master’s level programs who can demonstrate that they contribute to the diversity of the student body, especially those who can show that they have overcome a disadvantage or other impediment to success in higher education.  Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. A student who is awarded a Graduate Diversity Fellowship must enroll full time (9 graduate credit hours in his or her degree program) each semester to receive a stipend and/or tuition scholarship. College fees are paid by the student. Fellows must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA each semester to continue to receive funding and may receive funding for up to three semesters. Fellowships are available for fall and spring semesters only. For more information, visit the Graduate School.
