Summer Thesis / Dissertation Fellowship

Competition opens March 1, 2024

The Graduate School has limited funds to support summer fellowships on a competitive basis for master's, specialist, and doctoral students who are in the final stage of completing their thesis or dissertation. These fellowships are for students who plan to spend the majority of the summer completing their thesis or dissertation and plan to graduate at the end of the summer or fall semester.

Fellowship Award

Each fellowship award will be $1,000. If you are receiving financial aid during the term of the scholarship award, there may be a need to adjust the total financial aid award.  Please contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships (903-886-5096) for additional information about how this fellowship may affect financial aid.  Please note that fellowship funding is limited and only complete application packets will be reviewed for final award determination.

  • be a master's, specialist, or doctoral student in good academic standing at A&M-Commerce.
  • have received proposal approval from the Graduate School/Thesis & Dissertation Services no later than April 12, 2024.
