Fellowships, Grants, and Scholarships for Graduate Students:
The Graduate Scholarship provides financial means for graduate programs to recruit high caliber students. Graduate programs should use these funds to recruit prospective students who exhibit commendable academic merit and the highest financial need, or who otherwise make a significant contribution to the program of study. This scholarship awards first time graduate students with a total of $5,000 each academic year (split between fall and spring semesters) and can be awarded for up to two years as long as the student remains eligible. Thus, students who qualify will be granted a $10,000 scholarship for their graduate education.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must meet all of the following requirements:
To be considered for the scholarship, prospective students must have a scholarship application and an admissions application submitted by the posted deadline. The student’s admissions application does not need to be complete to be considered for the scholarship. For additional information about the Graduate Scholarship program, click here.

The Auzenne Fellowship is designed to assist Florida's State Universities in increasing the enrollment of students who are enrolled in graduate study in disciplines in which there is under-representation. Under this program, graduate students are nominated to receive awards of $5,000 each ($2,500 per semester; fall/spring or both) for year-long, full-time study. Awards will not be granted to the same Auzenne Fellows for more than two academic years for those in Master's programs or four academic years for doctoral students. Students who were awarded previously and are eligible to renew need to submit a new application (supplemental documents do not need to be submitted).
