Rackham Administered Fellowships and Grants

Rackham Graduate School administers two types of fellowships, grants and scholarships. For those requiring a program nomination or allocation, the graduate program submits a nomination on behalf of the student for a competition or allocated award; students may not apply directly for these awards. For the second type, a program nomination is not required and students may apply directly.
