Presidential Fellowships & Scholarships

President Subra Suresh launched the Presidential Fellowship and Scholarship program in 2014 to provide critical financial support to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students across all of CMU's seven colleges and schools. The funds go to support a student’s academic expenses, such as tuition and graduate research stipend.

By lowering the barriers of the cost of attendance for undergraduates and reducing the dependence on external funding sources for graduate students and faculty to pursue their research, endowed fellowships and scholarships will help ensure that CMU remains a world-leader in education and research for decades to come.

Related endowment funds and commitments of more than $156 million will support this and future classes of Presidential Fellows and Scholars across all seven CMU schools and colleges.

The first class of Presidential Fellows and Scholars has been named for the 2015-16 academic year. Read a message from President Subra Suresh.
