The FAMU Graduate Feeder Scholars Program is an official partnership agreement between Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and more than 40 Feeder Institutions around the country. The program addresses the need to increase the number of African Americans participating in advanced graduate education by affording FAMU students the opportunity to undertake advanced study in graduate programs not available at FAMU through partnering Feeder Institutions. The Office of Graduate Fellowships and Awards serves as Florida State University's liaison for the FAMU Graduate Feeder Scholars Program.
The fellowship provides Florida A&M University graduates that have fulfilled FAMU Feeder Program requirements funding support to pursue a graduate degree at Florida State University. Awards will be given for a maximum of four years for doctoral degree-seeking students and two years for masters degree-seeking students. The award will have a non-duty stipend of $7,250, tuition waivers up to twelve credit hours, along with the annual health insurance subsidy for each of the Fall and Spring semesters. No summer funding is provided. The fellowship may supplement an award by the academic unit or other entity if allowed. The application window is now open.
