The School of Global Studies Graduate Program offers six fellowships and scholarships of differing amounts to our students every year. Luckily, there is only one application, which once submitted, considers you for all six scholarships. 

 

You must return all applications by April 1st to i-study@okstate.edu or in person to 204 Wes Watkins Center on the OSU-Stillwater campus. If you are selected for a fellowship or scholarship, you are expected to submit a hand-written thank you note to be mailed to the donors.
