Graduate Student Fellowship Support Program
COGS is excited to provide the prestigious fellowship workshops for University of Idaho students. It is our hope that through the workshops, and reviews conducted by our partner faculty, students will be well prepared for the process of obtaining fellowships and awards which will advance both their academic studies and research. It is my hope, through our investment in this support program, that our UI students will rise to the top in the number of prestigious awards received.
— Jerry McMurtry, Dean College of Graduate Studies
