Pre-Doctoral and Gateway Fellows

The Fellowship stipend may be used for a purpose decided by the awardee and college that will enable the student to make progress in their pursuit of the Ph.D., e.g., student stipend, laboratory supplies, books, materials, travel, etc. None of the funds may be used for indirect costs by the institution.

An official transcript, sent directly from your institution’s registrar, showing at least 3 semesters of PhD study with grades must be sent as part of your application. The register can send your transcript via mail, or email. We understand that some offices may close, and therefore allow some flexibility in the deadline for receiving your transcript, but should receive it as soon as possible.
