GAANN Fellowships

Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need, or GAANN, is a program that provides fellowships to graduate students with excellent academic records who demonstrate a financial need. 

Award Amount

The award stipend may be up to $30,000 for the first year, plus health benefits, and professional travel allowance. For the second through fifth years of study all students will be supported by Dartmouth Fellowships or Research Assistantships from other sponsored programs, which provide full tuition.


GAANN fellowships are available to Dartmouth graduate students in their first year of study who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents planning to pursue the highest degree available in a field considered to be of national need. Areas of national need are: area, ethnic, and cultural studies; biology sciences/life sciences; chemistry; computer and information sciences; engineering; foreign languages; mathematics; nursing; physics; psychology; and educational evaluation, research, and statistics.
