Graduate Equity Fellowship

The Graduate Equity Fellowship program seeks to increase the diversity of students completing graduate programs at Sonoma State University, who plan to pursue doctoral programs, and are considering university faculty careers. It provides fellowships for economically disadvantaged SSU students, especially for those who are underrepresented among graduate degree recipients in their areas of study, and promotes faculty mentoring and research opportunities.

The intent of the fellowship is to minimize the debt burden and time to degree by replacing loans with grants. Eligibility includes admission and full-time enrollment in a graduate program, demonstrated financial need, and an academic standing of 3.0 GPA.

Application materials are made available during the spring semester of each academic year. Please contact the graduate advisor in your department or the graduate studies office for more information.
