About the Program
The Chancellor's Graduate Fellowship Program (CGFP) was established in 1991 for the purpose of providing strong encouragement as well as generous financial support to outstanding and diverse students interested in careers as college or university professors.
The Chancellor's Graduate Fellowship provides support for full-time study leading to the completion of the doctorate in most of Washington University's academic programs. Individuals interested in academic careers in the fields of Architecture and Art are also eligible. This special fellowship package provides a full tuition scholarship plus an annual stipend and allowance in the amount of $29,500 for the 2012-2013 academic year. Full information concerning the fellowship may be requested via the admissions page of this website.
The Chancellor's Graduate Fellows meet on a regular basis for the purpose of developing and sustaining a tightly knit community of scholars. Program activities include, but are not limited to, an annual conference, regular social events, discussion meetings with faculty and guests on topics ranging from the research agenda of the discipline to realities of campus life for scholars, relationships with undergraduate Ervin Scholars and Mellon Fellows, and volunteer community service.
