Graduate College provides academic units with an annual allocation of resources (i.e., block grant) to be used as University Graduate Fellowships to facilitate the recruitment and completion of the most diverse and high quality PhD students. An interested PhD applicant should communicate directly with the academic unit about the availability of such funds.
The amount awarded varies.
May 4 - UGF Block Grants
October 26 - UGF Block Grants
March 22 - UGF Block Grants
May 10 - UGF Block Grants
The annual renewal of funds is contingent on a demonstrated success in recruiting of a high quality and diverse student cohort as well as the timely completion of PhD students in the program
Units may allocate funds to recipients for Fall, Spring and/or Summer semesters. Authorized staff in academic units input the amounts to be distributed to University Graduate Fellowship recipients
Each fellow is personally responsible for individual taxes related to this award. Additional information regarding tax issues related to awards can be found at tax considerations. Specific questions should be directed to a tax advisor or contact the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.
An "overaward" is when a student’s need based awards exceed his/her financial need, or the total of the awards exceeds the cost of attendance. If a student has been overawarded, federal regulations require ASU to adjust his/her awards which may result in a reduction in awards or a bill. Need based aid include grants, scholarships, Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loans, and outside resources (i.e. faculty/staff tuition benefits, scholarships, stipends, etc.). Non-need based aid includes unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, Federal Graduate PLUS Loans and Private Education Loans. Questions regarding overawards should be directed to the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services.
