The Engineering-dean's awards will provide partial funding in fall, winter, and/or spring quarter 2022-23. Our goal is to help with financial-support for each student's academic progress within their degree program; there is no additional programming.
Each quarter, the award commits to approximately half of "full graduate funding". Each quarter, the student can choose:
Tuition-only fellowship equal to the 10 unit rate ($12,540/quarter in AY22).
* OR *
Match a department or faculty award of 10-hour/week CA or RA. Result: each source pays half of 20-hour CA/RA (salary + 10-unit-tuition + University Cardinal Care subsidy).
The tuition-only fellowship can be combined with other funding, such as another partial fellowship (e.g., GEM), a partial department CA, a partial RA from faculty, or graduate loans. We strongly encourage applicants to pursue these other funding opportunities, as well as more substantial funding which could replace our partial support: fellowships (NSF, Ford, etc) or 20-hour/week RA/CAships.
[See "Additional Resources" for a discussion of graduate funding and expenses, and of this particular award.]
Eligibility and Requirements:
This fellowship is available only for students who have accepted admission to coterminal MS study in the School of Engineering; funding is provided after their eligibility for undergraduate financial aid has been exhausted.
In addition, there is a strong preference for students with high-financial-need as undergraduates (usually determined by the Financial Aid office) and a preference for Engineering undergrad-majors, but the program will consider others.
** Decisions: Round1 should be announced in late February; Round-2 in early April. **
Deadlines to submit the application, in SOLO:
First round funding applications: Wednesday, February 2, 2022
(for current co-terms). Decisions will be released in Late February.
Second round applications: Thursday, March 17, 2022

Submitting an application gives permission for the review-committee to consider information from the student's MS-application and from the Financial Aid Office.
To receive support in any awarded-quarter, students must be fully enrolled and making satisfacory progress in their coterminal MS program in Engineering.
