Student Financial Opportunities
Graduate Fellowship for Research and Creative Activity
The Office of Research and Graduate Studies is pleased to announce Graduate Fellowships of
$5,000 for Spring 2013. Twenty fellowships will be awarded to graduate students who want to
undertake a research project or a creative activity supervised by a CSUN faculty. While the
project may be part of the student’s thesis, it is not a requirement. Students do not need to
completely finish the project in the spring semester. However, it is expected that a significant
part of the project will be accomplished during the award.
Although these are merit-based fellowships, students must have a FAFSA on file. Any questions, contact the Office of Graduate Studies at (818) 677-2138.
Deadline: TBD for 2013-2014 academic year

The maximum award is $4,500 per academic year and eligible students may apply for up to two years of support.
Please note that international students are not eligible for this program.
