In 2013, then Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little announced the creation of the Chancellor's Doctoral Fellowship, a dozen or which are awarded each year to graduate students. The fellowships assist KU in obtaining its mission as a flagship university that provides advanced education to students in a range of fields. The fellowship provides support through appointment as a graduate research assistant or a graduate teaching assistant, and covers tuition and fees, for up to five years of support. Students are also involved in professional development workshops and networking opportunities. More information about the Fellows can be found on the KU Lawrence campus Graduate Studies website.
The University of Kansas Medical Center was given the opportunity to award two students this prestigious fellowship every other year beginning in 2015.
