The Graduate College at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign offers a variety of internal and external fellowships for competitive applicants. Typically, recipients are provided with one year of fellowship support and the School of Social Work covers the second year of tuition. The School of Social Work screens all incoming students and will automatically submit a nomination for scholarly students that fit the criteria of those fellowships. Nominations are based on scholarship, work and volunteer experience, and stated plans for entering the social work profession. Students holding Fellowships may NOT also hold a Graduate Assistantship.
Applicants and current students can use the link below to access the FELLOWSHIP FINDER on the Graduate College website to check eligibility for any other type of fellowship. If you need a letter of support from the School of Social Work, please contact the Director of Student Affairs.
