Graduate Equity Fellowship

 The purpose of the Graduate Equity Fellowship is to encourage and assist students in their pursuit and completion of master's degrees and careers. This fellowship is available to applicants who are considered residents of the State of California for tuition purposes and enrolled in a master's degree program. Students who are attending SJSU on an F-1 visa are not eligible.  Credential-only candidates are not eligible.

Under the Graduate Equity Fellowship Program, awards from $2,000 to $5,000 may be made to graduate students enrolled at SJSU for the Fall/Spring academic year in which the call for applications is announced. Students must be enrolled in both academic terms and complete a minimum of 6 units in each. These 12 units must appear on the master's candidacy form. Coursework used to complete program prerequisites will not fulfill this enrollment requirement.  Program core coursework will fulfill the requirement.

Deadline for the submission of the application to the Office of Undergraduate and Graduate Programs, ADM 146 is Friday, June 16, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
