Scholarships & Fellowships
Late Entry Accelerated Program Scholarship
Engineering Graduate Scholarship
The Dean’s Fellowship is not renewable, but each recipient can expect continued support in the subsequent years provided that he/she makes good progress toward completion of the doctoral degree. This support will typically come in the form of a Graduate Research Assistantship but may also include funding as a Graduate Teaching Fellow. No specific teaching or research service is required of Dean’s Fellows, but recipients are expected to establish research goals with a research advisor during the first year of study.
All applicants to the PhD program are automatically considered for the Dean’s Fellowship award, and no special application is required. Potential recipients are nominated by each department, and final decisions regarding
Doctoral Research Assistantships
Academic research faculty members holding sponsored research grants or contracts offer Research Assistantships each year to qualified students who have particular interests and abilities in research areas of mutual interest.
Doctoral Teaching Fellowship
Boston University awards scholarship funds only to students who are in compliance with federal aid regulations regarding defaulted education loans or requirements of the United States Selective Service Administration. Applicants with prior histories of compliance deficiencies are advised to establish early contact with the Graduate Programs Office of the College of Engineering.
Tuition scholarship can be awarded only for courses applicable to a student’s degree program. Physical education and other unrelated class are not supported nor are withdrawals or audits.
In addition to the aforementioned tuition scholarships, there are institutional fellowships available to Boston University graduate students. Please refer to this link for BU Fellowship opportunities.
