Giving Opportunities

The Chancellor’s Graduate Fellowship Program will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2016. 

We currently have 40 Chancellor’s Fellows in residence and 120 alumni. Over the course of the Fellowship, we have maintained our commitment to providing financial and social support as well as professional development for diverse students interested in pursuing careers in the professoriate.  Currently, alumni of the Fellowship serve on the faculty of colleges and universities across the country.  We also have impressive placements in industry, business, government, and the private sector with Fellows serving as lawyers, engineers, artists, scientists, and consultants. 

To grow and strengthen the Fellowship, we need your help.  Specifically, we would like to enhance our recruitment efforts and professional development opportunities for current Fellows and alumni.  Our ultimate goal is to realize the full potential of the Chancellor's Graduate Fellowship as a mechanism for diversifying the faculty ranks of Washington University. 

Please contact us If you have feedback on these priorities or suggestions of your own.

Thanks in advance for your support.
