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).
To be eligible, students must meet all of the following criteria:
- Have been accepted into select graduate disciplines and professional programs where minority graduate students are disproportionately under-represented;
- Have demonstrated initiative in pursuing educational goals and possess the qualifications to assure satisfactory progress toward future educational goals;
- Are either citizens or permanent resident aliens (a copy of your card must be provided) of the United States.
- Have been classified as a Florida resident for tuition purposes for at least 1 year preceding the award of aid (Florida Statute 1009.21).
To be considered for this award, the application and supporting documentation must be submitted as a complete packet. After the application has closed, a review committee will convene. Applicants should be notified in May or June. Please note, due to limited funding, there are limited new awards for the 2020-2021 academic year.
