Graduate assistantship/scholarship designed for underrepresented minority students
MURRAY, Ky. — As part of its commitment to foster a truly inclusive and welcoming learning environment, Murray State University has launched its new Regents Fellowship. The one-year fellowship is designed to assist underrepresented minority students at Murray State with career development opportunities while completing their graduate degree.
Each recipient will earn a stipend of $3,750 each semester along with a $1,000 semesterly scholarship. The fellowship may be renewed for up to one additional year.
Applications for the fellowship are open through Aug. 3 at 4 p.m. CST. Following committee review and interviews, up to five Regents Fellows will be chosen by Aug. 14.
“I am particularly excited to launch our new graduate fellowship, the Murray State University Regents Fellowship, for the fall semester,” Murray State President Dr. Bob Jackson said. “ This program is of vital importance to the University as we continue our efforts to recruit and retain underrepresented minorities to our campus community.”
To be eligible, students must be a United States citizen, a member of one or more underrepresented minority groups at Murray State and fully admitted into a University graduate program. Preference will be given to students whose personal characteristics reflect historically underrepresented populations and financial need. If selected, the recipient must enroll as a full-time graduate student each semester of the award and maintain a 3.25 cumulative GPA or greater.
