As UTSA strives to achieve NRUF and Carnegie R-1 designation, our commitment to excellence in graduate research training is crucial to the institution's success. One measure of graduate research training success is the number of external federal fellowships awarded to UTSA graduate students. Several agencies have excellent opportunities for students to gain recognition for outstanding research activity. These include the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP), the Ford Foundation’s Predoctoral Program, and the National Institute of Health’s F31 Fellowship (NIH F31).
To encourage a culture where our students and their mentors prepare and submit competitive applications for national programs, as well as to underscore the value of these fellowships, we are pleased to offer the Graduate School Fellowship Incentive Program.
The Graduate School will award monetary incentives to students and their mentors who prepare and, after obtaining approval from the UTSA Fellowship Incentive Review Committee, submit applications in response to a variety of approved fellowship opportunities. If one of the funding agencies reviews a Review Committee-approved proposal, then:

Students and mentors should review eligibility criteria closely to ensure students are eligible. UTSA's Research Service Centers (RSCs) are available to provide guidance on proposals.
Students must complete the following action items:
Note: You will not be eligible for incentives if your proposal is not reviewed and approved by the Fellowship Incentive Review Committee before submission.
