Fellowship

The Hershel H. and Cornelia N. Everett Fellowship
(For Graduate Students)

The Hershel H. and Cornelia N. Everett Fellowship Program is designed to offer financial assistance to students enrolled in a Queens University of Charlotte graduate program within the Cato School of Education. The Fellowships are awarded annually and can be renewed.

Who Can Apply?
Students who can demonstrate a financial need for continuing their education may be eligible for the Fellowship.  In addition, a student must meet the following following requirements:

  • Have an established North or South Carolina residence
  • Maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average
  • Register for and complete at least 9 credit hours per academic year

What Could I Receive?
The amount granted to a student is totally based on that student's individual need and therefore may vary from student to student.

The maximum amount a student may receive per academic year is $2,000.

Once the amount of the Fellowship has been determined for a student, half of the award will be disbursed for the fall semester and the other half for the spring semester.  Summer session classes are not eligible for the award.

What Must I Do To Maintain the Fellowship During the Year?
As stated above, a student must maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average and must complete at least 9 credit hours per academic year.

In addition, a student must remain in good standing with the University. This means the student must follow all Board-approved policies, procedures, and eligibility requirements.

A Fellowship recipient may also be asked to attend a Fellowship reception held each Spring.
