Notification of Award and Disbursement
Due to the lingering effects of COVID-19, it is our hope to have award notifications go out to students around September 15, via email to the address provided in the application. If an award is made, the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office will place a fee deferral in the student record until the funds are made available. Half of the awarded funds are disbursed in the Fall semester, and half of the funds are disbursed in the Spring semester after recipients confirm their grades, their current schedule, and submit a letter of progress toward degree from their mentor.
Every effort is made to send award notification letters to students as soon as a determination is made regarding the winners; however, the actual funding for the fellowship is normally disbursed in October. Please note that the award of the Graduate Equity Fellowship may adjust or reduce other forms of aid in your financial aid package. If you have any questions about your financial aid package, please contact the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office.
