Fulton Schools of Engineering Fellowships

Fellowships through ASU and external resources, along with research and teaching assistant positions, offer many alternatives to fund your education expenses at ASU—often for multiple years or even the full course of study. Fellowship resources are limited, and many fellowships require U.S. citizenship or the right to work in the United States.

Fellowships are awarded on a highly competitive basis as part of the graduate program application process.
