Fellowship Opportunities

Georgia Tech awards a large number of individual fellowships. They vary in value from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands per year or more. Most fellowships are awarded by academic units/schools, not by the Office of Graduate Studies or the Office of Financial Aid. Even for programs where several schools are eligible, nominations come from within the programs, not directly from individual students. 

The only Institute-level fellowship programs are President’s Fellowships ($5,500 per year) and Institute Fellowships ($11,000 per year). These supplement assistantships or other fellowships. Programs nominate incoming students for these programs, and the Office of Graduate Studies administers the programs. Click here for more details about other available fellowships.  

The Department has a limited number of graduate fellowships, most of which are offered to first-year graduate students. Academic unit fellowship awards carry, in most cases, a stipend, plus a tuition award.

Also, unless international students are mentioned, awards are open only to U.S. residents. Both international and U.S. students can use www.scholarships.com to explore possible scholarship opportunities. Once you begin the application process, the Communication Center is a great resource. Visit the Fellowships Office website or email the office for help with locating additional opportunities and preparing applications.

Georgia Tech’s Office of Financial Aid also offers an outline of several fellowship opportunities, as well as application processes.
