The mission of the Richard A. Harvill Endowment is to perpetuate knowledge of Dr. Harvill, who served as UA president from 1951 to 1971, a period in which UA began its furious post-war enrollment growth, and the institution took its place among the leading research universities of the west. The award targets University of Arizona senior undergraduates, domestic or international who have completed a bachelor's degree at the UA in May 2017, have an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher, and have been admitted to a PhD program at the UA for Fall 2017. The Fellowship provides an annual stipend of $12,000, disbursed in two equal payments between the fall and spring terms and a Graduate Tuition Scholarship that covers base graduate level tuition (not the differential tuition assessed by some programs) for each semester of award.
$12,000 plus full base tuition (excludes mandatory registration fees and student health insurance) for one year only. There are two awards available.
Please note that the Richard A. Harvill Fellow may hold a concurrent graduate research or teaching assistantship, or additional department funds. Fellows will be required to be enrolled for a minimum of 9 graduate units during the tenure of the fellowship (or 6 graduate units if on a concurrent assistantship).
