The Office of the Provost at George Mason University is pleased to announce the launch of the newly created web site of the Office of Graduate Fellowships. This web site provides information on extramural fellowship, scholarship, and grant opportunities to support graduate-level research, study, training, and professional development. It is designed as a resource for Mason graduate students and the faculty and staff who mentor and support them.
In addition to web-based resources, the Office of Graduate Fellowships holds information sessions and workshops on fellowship opportunities and provides advising, coaching, and editorial support for Mason graduate students who are in the process of searching and applying for external funding.
