About the Fellowship:
The Delores Auzenne Fellowship provides academically talented new domestic doctoral
students who contribute diversity in USF graduate programs with opportunities for
funding and recognition. Students should represent individuals who are historically
underrepresented in specific disciplines along the dimensions of ethnicity and gender.
There will be approximately 2 awards made each year. As part of the application package,
the Department/School should provide a letter of recommendation (not to exceed 500
words) that describes the student's qualifications for receiving the Fellowship and
provide the student's letter of intent or student essay, as well as a transcript and
test scores (if required).
The Policy/Fellowship committee of the Graduate Council will review the candidates
from each College and make the award selections.
Stipend: Doctoral students receive $18,000 per year for up to three (3) years, contingent
upon available funding.
Tuition: Each award comes with a tuition waiver.
Student must be a new, incoming doctoral student. A Master's student from USF who
is entering the doctoral program may be considered for this award.
The fellowship recipient must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the United
States or its Trust Territories.
Recipients must be enrolled full time and be making satisfactory progress toward his/her
degree in order to be eligible for funding in years 2-3.

comparable to the other students in their department.
