CYAF Graduate Assistantship and Fellowships


CYAF students can apply for assistantship and fellowship awards on an annual basis. Students must re-apply each year for fellowship and assistantship awards. Awards are not guaranteed on a continual basis. The deadline to apply is February 1st. These awards are competitive and are limited each year by funds and additional available resources. Students taking courses online may apply for fellowship awards, and can be considered for assistantship awards if the student resides in the Lincoln-Omaha area. Please email questions/concerns to cyaf@unl.edu. You can also find more information on the Graduate Studies webpage. 

Graduate Assistantships: Assistantships require a certain number of service hours per week associated with teaching, research, and/or other responsibilities.

Graduate Fellowships: Fellowships are financial support awarded without teaching, research, or other responsibilities.
