$2.5 million for Graduate Scholars Program

Interim Provost Robin W. Morgan has announced a $2.5 million grant from the Unidel Foundation to establish and support a distinguished graduate scholars program at the University of Delaware. The Unidel Distinguished Graduate Scholars will receive the most prestigious graduate stipend awards offered by the University: $30,000 annually for five years of doctoral study and up to $5,000 a year to cover expenses including research travel and training.

The University anticipates making up to 12 Unidel Distinguished Graduate Scholar awards in 2018-19, and will submit an annual request for this funding to support a cohort of 60 Unidel Distinguished Graduate Scholars in 2022-23. During the first few years of this program, some of the Unidel funding will be used to support doctoral students in general.  For example, funds could be used to:

  • augment nine-month stipend support and provide summer stipend support for both new and current UD doctoral students,
  • provide summer research opportunities for rising juniors and seniors at other universities who are interested in pursuing doctoral degrees at UD,
  • provide summer research support for admitted UD doctoral students the summer before they matriculate, and
  • augment current professional development support for doctoral students.
