      1. Delores Auzenne Dissertation Award
        Named in honor of Delores Auzenne, this award is designed to assist underrepresented minority students in completing their dissertation work. The program provides competitively awarded stipends to PhD candidates who are in the advanced writing stages of their dissertations at UF. Students who are appointed on a state-funded fellowship or assistantship are not eligible. Interested students who meet the eligibility requirements are invited to apply to the OGMP. For more information and application deadlines please visit CLICK HERE.
      2. Board of Education Summer Fellowship
        Every summer, OGMP selects 35 incoming PhD students to be Board of Education (BOE) Fellows. This six-week summer fellowship program is designed as an orientation and preparation for the challenges of graduate education. It also helps students acclimate themselves to the University of Florida. The BOE Fellowship includes four credits of Summer B tuition and awards a $1,500 stipend. In addition, participants attend Research Methods and Academic Writing courses. Social events and development seminars are also planned. For more information and application deadlines please CLICK HERE.
      3. Bridge to the Doctorate Fellowship
        The Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Grant was awarded to UF by the National Science Foundation through the Florida-Georgia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (FG-LSAMP) to enhance recruitment and retention of underrepresented minority students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The BD provides $30,000 per year for the first two years of doctoral studies for former LSAMP students who are entering Ph.D. programs after completing baccalaureate degrees. In addition, the grant provides funds for the same two years for each BD student's cost of education (tuition, fees and health insurance). The grants are awarded through a competition to institutions every two years. The first cohort of BD students started in fall 2008; the second cohort started in the fall 2010 and will remain on the grant for two full years.
      4. FAMU Feeder Fellowship
        Florida A&M University's (FAMU) Graduate Feeder Program is an arrangement with 47 degree-granting institutions. OGMP reserves three to five financial aid packages annually for qualified FAMU graduates from all academic disciplines who wish to pursue advanced degrees, especially the doctorate. The FAMU Feeder application deadline is in the spring, in anticipation of accepting the fellowship award in the fall. For more information and application deadlines please CLICK HERE.
      5. McNair Graduate Fellowship
        UF provides a limited number of one-year research assistantships for McNair scholars who are entering a Ph.D. program at this institution. It provides a stipend ($12,000), in-state tuition, fees and health insurance for the first year of the PhD. It assists students who have successfully completed the McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program as undergraduates. It is open to all McNair Scholars in good standing. The student will be appointed and perform research assistant duties under faculty supervision. Since this program is intended to increase enrollment in PhD programs, currently enrolled doctoral students are not eligible.

The program provides limited tuition assistance for the remaining semesters. Applications are available in the Office of Graduate Minority Programs, or CLICK HERE.
      7. UF/Santa Fe College Faculty Development Project
        The UF/Santa Fe College (SFC) Faculty Development Project is a partnership designed to increase the number of doctoral students at UF and faculty at SFC. Students awarded this prestigious graduate assistantship receive an annual stipend, tuition and fee waiver, mentoring, and professional development training at UF and SFC. Participants are required to fill a teaching, advising, or recruitment & retention role at Santa Fe for the appointed year. Applicants must hold an MS/MA or equivalent degree with the required number of hours in an appropriate discipline based on SFC needs.
