FWCB graduate student stipends and research expenses are typically supported with a combination of research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and fellowships. Generally, the graduate programs affiliated with FWCB do not admit un-funded students. Prospective students should contact the Director of Graduate Studies and faculty members they are interested in working with to discuss the availability of funding. The following are the fellowship funds managed by the FWCB Department. Some of these are awarded to incoming students; others are for current students.
