Graduate Equity Fellowship Program
Graduate Equity Fellowship for Under-Served Groups
The goal of the Graduate Equity Fellowship Program (GEFP) is to prepare, motivate, encourage and support those graduate students who aspire to obtain a doctorate and pursue an academic career in teaching and research. Awards for an academic year total $5,500. The two-part program provides a stipend of $750/semester and a salary of $2,000/semester for research related activities under the direction of a faculty mentor.
Applicants must meet the following minimum criteria: You must be economically disadvantaged; come from an educationally disadvantaged background/experienced restricted access to quality educational opportunities; be admitted to the University and a master’s degree program; classified as a California resident; and there must be a probable need for faculty in your academic discipline - i.e., a projected shortfall in the supply of qualified faculty in your field of study.
The application and additional information can be found on the Office of Graduate Studies’ website at http://www.csuchico.edu/graduatestudies/fellowships/index.shtml. Or direct questions to Professor Matthew Thomas, GEFP Coordinator, at (530) 898-5738 or email@example.com .
