McKnight Fellows

The Award

Up to 50 fellowships are awarded annually to study at one of nine participating Florida universities. Each award provides annual tuition up to $5,000 (tuition above this amount is waived by the participating institution) for each of three academic years, plus an annual stipend of $12,000. (An additional two years of support at this same level is provided by the participating institution.) The award also includes a comprehensive system of academic support.

Each annual renewal is contingent upon satisfactory performance and normal progress toward the Ph.D. degree.
