BoRSF support for Graduate Fellowships was eliminated through stand-alone subprograms effective FY 2017-18. The BoR/SREB subprogram, which provided both fellowships and membership in SREB’s highly effective Doctoral Scholars Program, will continue under a separate RFP as a component of Enhancement. Fellowships may continue to be requested as a component of a Departmental Enhancement comprehensive application.
Board of Regents/SREB Doctoral Support Initiative to Promote Student and Faculty Diversity
The Board of Regents/SREB Graduate Fellowships to Promote Diversity subprogram provides up to ten (10) support slots per year statewide to help recruit and retain underrepresented minority students seeking doctoral degrees. Awards are made to graduate schools or governing units for graduate education at eligible institutions, which then determine the distribution of individual slots among qualified departments. Each slot includes an academic-year supplement for student support, membership in SREB’s Doctoral Scholars Program, and participation in SREB’s annual Institute on Teaching and Mentoring.

Endowed Superior Graduate Student Scholarships
Approved by the Board in September 2014, the Endowed Superior Graduate Student Scholarships Subprogram matches non-State contributions of at least $60,000 with $40,000 from the BoRSF to create endowed scholarships that may be used in support of graduate and first-professional students as well as post-doctoral fellows. Higher levels of endowment, in minimum increments of $60,000, may be matched with additional $40,000 contributions from the Support Fund. The initial corpus of the endowment must remain intact, while income above the corpus may be used to benefit the student recipient in the form of scholarships, fellowships, and/or experiential opportunities, including internships, externships, conference travel, and field work.
