McKnight Doctoral Fellowship

Minority Candidates: McKnight Doctoral Fellowship
Deadline: January 15

The Office of Graduate Minority Programs, in partnership with the Florida Education Fund, administers the McKnight Doctoral Fellowship for African-American and Hispanic students. The program is designed to increase the number of African-American and Hispanic faculty in the state of Florida. Each fellow receives a base stipend of $12,000 with tuition, health insurance and fee waiver for a maximum of five years. Applicants must be US citizens admitted to a University of Florida Ph.D. program and entering the first year of that program. Applications must be submitted directly to the Florida Education Fund before January 15 to compete for funding opportunities the following fall. 

Students are not required to have admission decisions at the time of application submission. Students are notified by the Florida Education Fund of selections decisions no later than April 15.

All application materials must be submitted directly to the Florida Education Fund by January 15. The deadline will be strictly enforced. McKnight Doctoral Fellowship applications can be completed at the Florida Education Fund website, or by calling 813-272-2772.
