Fellowships, like scholarships, are selective awards granted to graduate students for academic excellence. They are used to fund graduate study, scholarly work, or to provide professional development to an aspiring graduate student. Internal fellowships are offered through UMBC, while external fellowships may be obtained outside the university.
