Thomas C. Rumble University Graduate Fellowships

The Thomas Rumble Fellowship aims to optimize Ph.D. students' performance by providing support for and establishing expected outcomes at each stage of the training process. The fellowship has been expanded and reorganized to provide support at the recruitment, development of research/scholarship and completion stages. Allocations to departments, schools and colleges have been determined based primarily on Ph.D. productivity. Units receiving a fellowship allocation will determine in which of the three categories they will make awards and to whom the awards are made, and will be expected to document the outcomes for each fellowship recipient. Recipients of the Rumble award may hold employment within the University up to 10 hours per week with prior written permission using the Request for Approval of an Additional Service Assignment form.
