Northern Arizona University (NAU) would like to announce the 2018-19 Presidential Fellowship Program, available in the Applied Linguistics PhD program in the Department of English, which will offer generous support packages of $27,000 per academic year to highly qualified incoming PhD students beginning in fall 2018. Fellowship awards consist of a graduate assistantship stipend, a supplemental fellowship stipend, full tuition remission, major medical insurance benefits, and annual professional development funding. Awards are renewable for up to 4 years.

Academically outstanding students who are considering a PhD program at NAU are encouraged to submit application materials as early as possible to be eligible for this fellowship program. Following an interview and acceptance into a PhD program, NAU faculty members may nominate top students to receive Presidential Fellowship Awards. The nomination process opens on November 1. You are encouraged to submit all application materials before then. You may apply at any time before our standard application deadline but we expect that the nomination process will become increasingly competitive.

To be considered for a Presidential Fellowship nomination, you must be accepted into the PhD program. In order to do this, applicants must (a) apply to the PhD degree program and (b) ensure that ALL application materials—including the online NAU application, transcripts, statement of purpose, current CV, recommendations, GRE scores, TAship application materials, and, if relevant, TOEFL/IELTS scores—are received. Applicants do not apply for the Presidential Fellowship Program directly. Only those who are accepted into the PhD program are potential nominees for the Presidential Fellowship.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received. To begin the application process, go to
