Graduate Fellowship

ACC awards Graduate Fellowships to a select number of international students from eligible countries who have received admission to degree-granting graduate programs in the United States. ACC prioritizes applicants who pursue study abroad because comparable programs are not available in the applicant’s home country and/or fields that are under-represented in the applicant’s home country. When selecting recipients, ACC commits to supporting scholarship recipients for up to two years on the condition that they maintain good academic standing. Scholarship awards support living expenses but do not cover tuition assistance.
