RE:                          2014 Board of Education (BOE) Fellowship Program



Greetings! It is with much pleasure that we announce the 2014 Board of Education (BOE) Fellowship Program, sponsored by the Office of Graduate Minority Programs. This year’s program is scheduled for June 25, 2013-August 8, 2014.


We are asking for your assistance in identifying prospective participants in the BOE program. The BOE program is open to new PhD students that are first generation, minority or underrepresented in their major in graduate education. Please encourage all eligible students to apply! 


Highlights of the Board of Education Summer Fellowship Program:


Students receive a $1500 stipend during Summer B as well as a tuition waiver for required enrollment in four (4) Graduate credit hours.   Note that in most cases an individual study or supervised research will be necessary to provide an opportunity to review literature and to begin focusing on a research topic.


Applications and additional information on the program can be found on our website at:


If you have any questions or require additional information please let us know.  We can be reached by telephone at 392-6444 or email at [log in to unmask]


Thank you for your assistance and commitment in retaining quality graduate students.  We look forward to your continued support of the Office of Graduate Minority Programs.
