Program Details

The Cornell University Graduate School funds a significant number of fresh doctoral students with fellowships awarded throughout their graduate field. The fellowship provides financial support to graduate students to pursue graduate studies without associated teaching or research responsibilities (as they are in a teaching or research assistantship).

Cornell University Fellowships are generally merit-based internal or external awards to support a student in a full-time course of study. Approximately 20% of doctoral students studying on campus receive Cornell University Fellowships (referred to as Sage Fellowships or Cornell Fellowships depending on the field of study).
