Guarini Fellowships Program

Guarini Fellowships Program

The Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies offers eight (8) Fellowships for graduate students who will work with the Assistant Deans across one of the following key areas: Communications, Diversity, Events & Activities, and Mentoring. Fellows will be provided an additional stipend of $3,000 over their normal stipend for the nine months of the Fellowship, with the option to apply for a second year. 

For 2020, a pilot program will be developed over a nine-month period with two (2) Graduate Student Activities Fellows, two (2) Graduate International Mentoring Fellows, two (2) Graduate Diversity Fellows and two (2) Graduate Communications Fellows.

Fellows will participate in leadership events and will be recognized on the School website as Guarini Fellows. Fellows will meet weekly with their Assistant Dean and other Fellows in their area of interest. The Fellows will be expected to dedicate 8 hours per week to their role, with some of that time spent in the Guarini Graduate Office. Fellows will also be required to assist in Guarini School events such as Orientation and Commencement. Prospective applicants are encouraged to read through the individual Fellowship information for details.

Applicants must be in good academic standing and faculty references and program approval will be required from all applicants.
