Graduate Alumni Fellowships, University Research Fellowships, and George R. MacDonald Fellowships are University-wide awards administered by the Graduate School. These awards of $5,000 each for the academic year are made on a competitive basis to nominees selected by the departments. Scholarly potential and academic excellence are the sole criteria for the awards.
South Carolina Graduate Incentive Fellowships of $5,000 for master's students or $10,000 for doctoral students are available to minority graduate students. These awards are renewable. Master's students must be citizens of South Carolina. Preference is given to new applicants and those who express a commitment to remain and be employed in the state for two years. These fellowships are administered by the Graduate School.
OCRWM Fellowships: Clemson University is one of only 18 universities nationwide from which graduate students may apply for fellowships from the OCRWM of the U.S. Department of Energy. Technical emphasis areas include earth science (hydrology-geology) and engineering. Contact the Graduate Program Coordinator for more information or if you would like to be considered for the OCRWM Fellowship.
Clemson University and NSF GK-12 Fellowships:This project allows graduate students in the sciences to spend one year in partnership with a middle or high school teacher. The fellowship requires approximately 20 hours per week from July 1 through the beginning of May. Fellows are funded for the final two months (providing they register for classes), but have no official duties during that time. Under no circumstances will fellowships be renewed for a second year. Contact Dr. Rich Warner ( mailto:email@example.com) or Dr. Jim Castle ( firstname.lastname@example.org) of Geological Sciences.
