Graduate Fellowships

Graduate students perform the bulk of the research that results in groundbreaking discoveries at UH, from pharmaceutical development to American literature and everything in between. Admissions are competitive, and when talented graduate students are weighing the options for the next step of their academic career, we want UH to be at the top of their list.

There are many factors that go into a graduate student’s choice to attend UH, including renowned faculty mentors, state-of-the-art research facilities, opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, the professional capital of the fourth-largest city in the U.S. — those qualities are important, and UH is growing its faculty and facilities to keep in time with a rapidly evolving cultural and scientific landscape.

But it’s a sustaining graduate fellowship that is often the linchpin in a student’s decision; it is the funding they need to concentrate on life-changing research on campus and in the field.

To increase graduate enrollment, we must offer an increased number of graduate fellowships. Creating an endowed graduate fellowship means your gift will go to work for generations of students to come.
