Delores Auzenne Fellowship

The Delores Auzenne Fellowship is designed to assist Florida's State Universities in recruiting high achieving graduate students. Under this program, graduate students are nominated by Graduate Program Directors to receive awards of $5,000 each ($2,500 per semester; fall/spring) for full-time study for a maximum of two academic years. Recipients who are eligible for renewal will automatically be awarded the next year. 

Eligibility & Requirements

To be eligible for the fellowship, applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:
  • Be a first-time, degree-seeking graduate student at UNF for the summer or fall term. Students previously enrolled as post-baccalaureate or in a graduate certificate program at UNF are eligible.
  • Have been classified as a Florida resident for tuition purposes for at least 1 year preceding the award of aid (Florida Statute 1009.21). Students still undergoing residency review (link residency page) and classified as incomplete residency for tuition purposes will be considered, providing they complete residency requirements by the posted residency deadline of their admission term.
Colleges may set additional eligibility and application requirements including, but not limited to:  
  • A minimum admission GPA 
  • Essay 
  • Letter(s) of recommendation  

Students are advised to contact their graduate program director no later than April 30 for further details on being nominated for this award.
