The Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships (OGSAF) administers several fellowships and scholarships for prospective and current graduate students at the George Washington University.
These fellowships and scholarships can be divided into three categories:
- Student Application Awards: these awards require interested graduate students to complete an application on OGSAF's application portal.
- GW-Specific External Awards: these awards require interested graduate students to complete an application through an external organization's website, but are only available to GW students.
- Department Nomination Awards: these awards require departments to nominate students based on their GW admissions materials and academic performance. NO ACTION is required from students to be considered for these awards.
