Graduate Fellow Interview Day

Every year, over 25 graduate students are hired for year-long Administrative Fellowships in offices across the University, including the divisions of Student Affairs and Student Success. These placements provide great opportunities for learning about career paths and gaining hands-on professional experience. We’ll help you find yours.

Information about Administrative Fellowships

The University has many kinds of fellowships available for graduate students. As an Administrative Fellow, you will receive an annual scholarship and work stipend combination of $13,400 ($7,200 in grants, $6,200 in employment). The work year typically begins no earlier than the first day of class in September and ends the last day of the spring semester in May.

Please note that students are only able to accept one fellowship total. Fellowships on campus include—but are not limited to—Administrative Fellowships, CAS fellowships, and SBS fellowships.

CAS and SBS Fellowship placements follow their own application processes and deadlines, separate from the process for an Administrative Fellowship. If you received a CAS or SBS Fellowship, refer back to your financial aid packet for more instructions and a contact person.

If you were awarded a CAS or SBS Fellowship, you would have to forgo your award in place of these Administrative Fellowships. If you have already been awarded a CAS or SBS fellowship and are not interested in applying for an Administrative Fellowship role, please follow the original instructions you received in your financial aid letter regarding your fellowship placement. Additionally, students enrolled in a PhD program are not eligible for Administrative Fellowships.

Application Process & Deadlines 

The 2023 Administrative Fellowship application is now open, and will close on Saturday, April 29th at midnight EST.

Learn what roles are available and apply to those roles.

Offices will review applications after the deadline has passed, and will interview applicants they are interested in on Graduate Fellow Interview Day, taking place on Wednesday, May 10. Interviews will be from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. EST, all via Zoom.

Questions can be sent to Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, Dennis Harkins.
