Scholarships & Fellowships

Strategic Recommendation

Expand scholarship and fellowship resources for undergraduate and graduate students.

  • Significantly increase resources available for scholarships and fellowships to improve recruitment and retention of a diverse student population, while bolstering faculty and staff recruitment by ensuring that our students are the best and brightest, regardless of financial means.
  • Highlight both the inherent financial support and the honorific designation for recipients.
  • Continue efforts to limit student borrowing, to the degree possible, especially for students who require the most support.
  • Expand direct financial support to helping students and families manage the cost of attendance in the context of the conspicuous financial return on investment that the Carnegie Mellon University education affords our alumni.
