Graduate Fellowships and Scholarships
Various fellowships, scholarships, and grants are available to provide financial support to graduate students at the beginning of their graduate program, during their program, and as they near graduation and prepare for their professional career. Some funding opportunities are offered by the Graduate School and other units at K-State. Other funding opportunities are offered by external agencies and organizations.
Funding from the Graduate School
Students must publish in top journals and speak at national and international conferences to demonstrate research communication. Spring semester applications are accepted.
Grants are up to $1,000 for research costs.
The Graduate School accepts applications for the Small Grants Program each fall semester.
Our Graduate School graduates should recall their time as students as a period when they created jobs and happy lives.
For one year, doctoral students receive a $5,000 scholarship and master's students receive a $3,000 scholarship.
Funding may be renewed for one year based on a nomination from the student's graduate program.
Scholarships will support study abroad for at least one semester, a faculty-led study abroad trip with cultural experiences, or scholarly research presentation at an international professional meeting in Taiwan or an invited exhibition.
Other Funding Opportunities at K-State
Students will need to create a profile within the system that will match them to specific scholarship opportunities provided by K-State donors.
These scholarships are offered through university departments, potentially including an applicants own academic college and/or department.
The K-State Office of First-generation Students (OFGS) awards $500-$750 scholarships to first-generation students in good academic standing.
Applicants must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours. Immigrant students without FAFSA eligibility may apply.
