Fellowships offer graduate students the opportunity to apply their talents at research centers, universities, and nonprofit organizations worldwide. Students refine their skills as they work to address issues of regional, national, and international importance.


Diversity Fellowship

Each year, a limited number of fellowships are awarded to graduate students in an effort to help the university achieve a more diverse graduate student body. A variety of factors may be used for the purpose of increasing diversity at the university, including gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other protected classifications consistent with the university’s nondiscrimination policy. These awards provide tuition support, and are recommended by the student’s academic department or college. There is no work requirement associated with the fellowship.


Fulbright Fellowship

Fulbright is the largest U.S. exchange program offering opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching worldwide. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers two types of grants for graduate students: the research/study grant and the English Teaching Assistantship (ETA).


Dissertation Completion Fellowships

The Graduate Dissertation Completion Fellowship provides doctoral candidates close to completing their dissertation with the financial support needed to spend their final semester writing. The award provides a one-semester stipend that is half of the current academic year stipend rate. In addition, both the student’s one-credit registration fee and health fees will be covered by the award for the semester. The award must be used during the semester for which it is awarded and may not be deferred. For more information on the Dissertation Completion Fellowship, visit Northeastern’s Research site.


Graduate Thesis/Dissertation Research Grant

The Thesis/Dissertation Research Grant is designed to help full-time graduate students meet the costs associated with completing their thesis or dissertation research, to improve the quality and impact of their research, and/or to support research endeavors intellectually independent of the advisor. Allowed expenses include, but are not limited to:

  • Travel to special library or museum collections, archives, laboratories, or other research facilities
  • Access to libraries, databases, or other information sources not otherwise available
  • Hiring consultants or special services
  • Remuneration of research subjects or supporting undergraduate research assistants
  • The purchase of specialized reagents, supplies, software, or equipment not otherwise available (which will remain the property of the university)

Proposals to fund specialized training will be eligible for consideration only if such training is clearly necessary for the applicant’s thesis or dissertation research.

For more information, visit Northeastern’s research site. You can also contact Ginny Leung, fellowships and grants assistant for the Office of the Provost, by email at g.leung@northeastern.edu or by phone at 617.373.6904.
