Fontaine Fellowships

Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Fontaine Fellows receive multi-year, full funding including tuition, stipend ($30,500/year in most STEM fields) and health insurance. Fontaine Fellowships are used to advance the University's goals related to diversity. Originally restricted to U.S. students from groups "traditionally and historically underrepresented" in higher education - specifically African American, Native American, and Hispanic students - diversity is now more broadly defined to include economically disadvantaged and first-generation college students, and others from backgrounds underrepresented in a specific discipline or field. Fontaine funding is used by the schools, in combination with other resources, to recruit a diverse class of PhD students. Fontaine Fellowships support students in PhD programs across all STEM fields including those in Biomedical Graduate Studies, Engineering, Arts and Sciences, and Nursing.
