American Graduate Fellowships

The American Graduate Fellowships were designed to promote and support doctoral study in the humanities by accomplished graduates of small and mid-sized private liberal arts colleges. Two fellowships were awarded annually through 2011. The fellowships were available to students from eligible institutions who enrolled in doctoral programs at any of a select group of leading independent research universities in the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland to study history, philosophy, literature and languages, and fine arts.

This program was funded by the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation and provided awards during 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2011.
