Internal Award Application

General Notice

Carefully read through and understand the award policies and procedures before submitting your application. Note that ineligible or incomplete applications are not reviewed; however, the Graduate Office will not review application files prior to submission because it is the applicant’s responsibility to verify that application documents are up-to-date, accurate, and complete prior to submission. File revision after submission is not possible. Furthermore, due to the confidential nature of the adjudication process, reviewer comments are not retained; therefore, feedback regarding specific applications is not available.

Application Process

Recommended procedure


  1. Review award descriptions and eligibility criteria
  2. Inform referee of your intent to apply
