Fellowship Programs

student researcher 1 In an effort to recruit outstanding graduate students, the college offers fellowships to a select group of candidates who have the potential to excel in graduate studies at Auburn. Established in 2007, the program has grown steadily with hundreds of students receiving fellowships. Through a generous gift from Walter and Virginia Woltosz, the college is able to offer graduate fellowships to students who demonstrate outstanding scholastic accomplishments. The Woltosz’s gift is instrumental in sustaining the success of this program, and fellowship recipients are known as Woltosz Fellows. In 2018, Charles Gavin significantly enhanced the college’s efforts in this area with the creation of the Charles E. Gavin III Fellowship Program for doctoral students. Gavin’s transformational gift has allowed the college to grow this vital program, and the doctoral fellowship recipients are known as Gavin Fellows.
