Several fellowship award programs exist, which can provide graduate student stipends, tuition allowances, and funds for other purposes (e.g., equipment purchase). Examples of such fellowships are the NASA Graduate Student Research Program (GSRP), National Science Foundation Fellowships, and Space Grant Fellowships. Announcements of these fellowships are typically made annually, both as brochures and on sponsoring websites. Interested students may also obtain information on such fellowships from departmental offices or http://www.uah.edu/graduate.

In addition, the Graduate Student Fellowship is awarded to newly admitted first-time, full-time students who have demonstrated superior academic achievement in their undergraduate education and who have submitted an application for admission, official transcripts, and standardized test scores to UAH are automatically considered for a Graduate Student Fellowship. Online students are ineligible for consideration. For more information, visit http://www.uah.edu/admissions/graduate.

Endowed fellowships for graduate study exist in several departments. See the graduate website at http://www.uah.edu/admissions/graduate for the most current listing.
