At Florida State University, graduate education is central to the mission of the institution, and the students we train make significant contributions to the educational, technical, scientific and economic advancement of the university, the state of Florida and the nation. Our graduate student alumni are leaders in academia, industry, government and their communities.
The Graduate School provides financial support in the form of fellowships, research and travel grants, and special research, teaching and leadership recognition awards for graduate students at Florida State University. Also, we offer information and services related to admissions; orientation and degree requirements; and workshops to help graduate students succeed in their programs.
The Fellows Society was launched in 2008 as a way to bring together our outstanding graduate students who hold competitive university-wide fellowships for the purpose of interdisciplinary learning. The mission of the Fellows Society includes: recognizing and advancing academic excellence at the graduate level by developing leadership skills, promoting exchange and interactions among fellows from different departments, and promoting service to the university and community.
To attract the best and brightest students to Florida State University and to sustain and continually enhance the quality of the graduate educational experience, we must rely on gifts from our friends and alumni who share our vision of excellence. By supporting The Graduate School, you have the opportunity to invest in students who are acquiring the analytical and leadership skills needed to face global challenges with creativity and intellectual rigor.
