The English Department grants two kinds of awards to PhD candidates.
Teaching fellowships are three-year awards to entering doctoral students. These fellowships include a stipend and full tuition waiver. See below for further description of Teaching Assistantship Options.
Other awards include:
- Doctoral Fellowships, grants to exceptional PhD candidates
- Colorado Grants, for PhD candidates who are residents of the state of Colorado
- The Evan Frankel Dissertation Fellowship, a stipend for one fourth-year doctoral student to work full-time on completion of the dissertation
Note: All students receiving financial aid or awards of any sort must file a FAFSA
with the Office of Financial Aid before the award can be made. All teaching assistantships
and fellowships require full-time attendance; the Doctoral Fellowship requires a minimum
registration of nine hours per quarter. Also, all assistantships and fellowships require
that students remain in good standing and meet all major requirements on schedule.
