L&S Procedures on Fellowships

This document contains information to help department staff prepare appointment letters for graduate assistants receiving a fellowship.

General Info

Fellowships are monetary awards that students use to pursue graduate studies. In general, fellowships require no work obligations on the part of the recipient. 

Instructions

An appointment letter and nonservice job aid must be sent to your STS/SA HR Rep before the hire will be processed. The HR Rep will review the letter to ensure required details are included, but stipulations of the fellowship are the department’s responsibility to list accurately (amount, duration…).
