Several fellowships are offered by the University of Kansas on a competitive basis. Candidates interested in competing for the fellowships should contact the Department about a year prior to the intended date of enrollment. Generally, the candidate's dossier must be filed with the Department by mid-January to be considered for a fellowship nomination for the following fall semester. A synopsis of funding resources available to students at the University of Kansas can be found at the website of the Office of Graduate Studies.
Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship. This is a portable fellowship, meaning that you can take the funding with you to the university of your choice. Students beginning their graduate study are eligible. Deadline is usually in early December.
Self Fellowship. Self fellowships provide four years of fellowship and tuition support to highly talented students who are entering KU to pursue doctoral degrees.
Council of Higher Education for Citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Canada who are of Czech, Slovak, or Ruthenian descent (the nationalities of the area comprising the first Czechoslovak Republic, 1918 - 45). Students must be full-time (enrolled for the entire upcoming academic year) undergraduate or graduate students pursuing a bachelor's or advanced degree and enrolled in a course of study at an accredited academic institution.
FLAS Fellowship. Prospective graduate students should apply directly to the Center for Russian and East European Studies, but inform the Slavic Department of their intentions.
Additional resources for students of Slavic Languages and Literatures and Russian and East European Studies is found on the REES Grants and Fellowships page.
