Support of graduate assistantships and fellowships is a multi-faceted investment in
the U of M, our graduate students and world-class programs across the University.
While assisting students financially and attracting top graduate scholars, assistantships
and fellowships allow more focus on scholarship, thus supplementing groundbreaking
research at the University and strengthening graduate and undergraduate disciplines
The University’s research and academic programs depend heavily upon graduate fellows
who contribute profoundly through scholarship, teaching and mentorship. By supporting
assistantships and fellowships, donors not only aid the students and their graduate
programs, but impact the University and our next generation of scholars, enhance the
value of every U of M degree and touch the lives of individuals far beyond the U of
Endowed fellowships and assistantships can be established to benefit a particular
graduate program, a college or the graduate school as a whole. For more information
