Scholarships/Fellowships

During the application process, applicants are encouraged to apply for eligible scholarships/fellowships through the UConn graduate school. As part of their application, graduate students will be prompted to select whether they wish to be considered for the eligible scholarship or fellowship awards. The MSAT program will then be able to see those applicants, select the ones they wish to nominate, and then fill in the required supporting documentation. Per graduate school policies, a maximum of four nominated students are allowed in each category, and the program will be required to rank the nominees. All supporting documentation will be provided through the SLATE application of the UConn Graduate School application. A Fellowship Selection Committee, appointed by the Graduate School, will determine the final candidates for the awards, and will notify the highest ranked candidates to be awarded the scholarship/fellowship.
