McKnight Doctoral Fellowships
McKnight Doctoral Fellowships from the Florida Education Fund are available to African American and Hispanic U.S. citizens applying to a PhD program in an eligible field of study. The University of Miami is one of nine participating institutions in the State of Florida. Each Fellowship award consists of $18,000 per year in tuition, fees, and stipend, as well as an excellent academic support system.
Applicants must hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Since this program is intended to increase enrollment in Ph.D. programs, currently enrolled doctoral students are not eligible to apply.
