Graduate School Recruitment Fellowships


These fellowships are prestigious awards funded by the Graduate School to attract top quality graduate students to The University of Texas (UT). Graduate advisers have the vital role of identifying and nominating eligible applicants.

Note: Award decisions for these fellowships have been decentralized. It is important that you check with the Dean's Office of your unit for nomination procedures, stipend levels, guidelines and deadlines regarding these fellowships. The only recruitment award decisions being handled out of the Graduate School this year will be those for the Harrington, Powers, McNair, South Texas and West Texas Graduate Fellowships and Diversity Mentoring awards to faculty.


Students not currently or previously enrolled in the Graduate School at UT. Candidates must rank within the top 10% of all students in their discipline. Most disciplines eligible.


Stipend can vary depending on program and college.

Nomination by Graduate Adviser

Check with the Dean's office of your unit about nomination procedures. However, all awards for Graduate School Recruitment (pre-emptive) Fellowships will need to be entered into the online Graduate School Awards System that can be accessed from EASI. Note: If you cannot find the link in EASI, you can trying linking directly to the “GCD Grad School Fellowships” page in EASI. If you are not allowed access there, you are not authorized. Graduate coordinators can contact Shannon Neuse in GIAC for authorization, and graduate advisers or GSC chairs can contact Nancy Riley in the Graduate School for their authorization.

A new, convenient reporting application for entering award decisions will be available later this spring. The nomination process is described in a tutorial for the new online awards system.
