Teaching fellowships are awarded each year. Graduate fellows receive a cash stipend and full remission of tuition. Tuition remission is also extended to fellows in the summer sessions adjoining the fellowship year. Fellows are required to provide the equivalent of twelve hours per week of instructional service in the undergraduate laboratories. Upon recommendation of the department, fellowship appointments may be renewed for a second year. All M.S. Applicants are automatically considered for a teaching or research fellowship. No additional application is required. The Award recipients are normally notified with offer of admission - typically before April 1.
