Managing Graduate School fellowships and awards just got easier

Student reading and researching on the study in the library

Students, advisers, faculty and others can now apply for, nominate, review and approve financial support from the Graduate School using the new Awards Management feature in the administrative tool, MyGrad.

This new system replaces the Graduate School’s Fund for Excellence and Innovation (GSFEI) and consolidates the request process for both GO-MAP scholarships and fellowship and awards

Key highlights of the release:

  • Updated, modern user interface also improves accessibility
  • Request, nominate, review and approve awards from the Graduate School in one place
  • Students can see funds awarded and accept or decline them
  • Students can request awards through the student portal
  • Advisers can request awards through the new Awards Request section; previous award requests can be viewed on GSFEI
  • Advisers can view the award application materials from previous years
  • The Graduate School can provide accurate reports on department awards
