As the cost of an education continues to rise, scholarships are one mechanism in which a sponsor can mitigate these costs for deserving students. These can be made at the undergraduate or graduate level.
After faculty support, graduate students represent the highest expense of the department. However, they also represent its future, as they produce the research to solve problems with cutting edge technologies and eventually enter the workforce to do the same. As the research university for the State of Florida, it is our mission to graduate Ph.D. students. Fellowships provide both tuition and stipend support for deserving graduate students.
