Tell me about Cornell University Africa Fund:

Approximately 20% of our doctoral students studying on campus receive Cornell University Fellowships (referred to as Sage Fellowships or Cornell Fellowships depending on the field of study). These fellowships typically include full tuition, a nine-month stipend, and Cornell individual student health insurance. A summer stipend may also be provided to students.

A fellowship provides financial support to graduate students to pursue graduate studies without associated teaching or research responsibilities (as they are in a teaching or research assistantship). Fellowships are generally merit-based internal or external awards to support a student in a full-time course of study. 

The Graduate School funds a significant number of entering doctoral students with fellowships awarded through their graduate field.

To find out about the vast array of awards that will be appropriate for you, talk with your director of graduate studies (DGS) and other students in your field. UCLA’s fellowship database (GRAPES) also offers an extensive list of external fellowship opportunities to consider.
