Scholarships & Awards

Departmental Scholarships, Awards, and Opportunities

We offer several annual awards and grants to recognize and support outstanding research. Unless otherwise noted, all applications are due in March. If an award is paid in the summer, the recipient must enroll in at least 1 credit hour during the summer term to receive the award. For additional information about specific fellowships, contact the Graduate Students Coordinator

Graduate School + College awards

In addition to these departmental awards, students from our department apply and receive many awards announced by the College of Arts and Sciences and the University Graduate School, such as the Dissertation Year Fellowship, the Wells Fellowship, and the John Edwards Fellowship.

Foreign Language Area Study (FLAS) fellowships from the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies are frequently won by students in the department. Students seeking potential sources of funding are encouraged to begin their search through the IU GradGrants Center.
