Graduate School Office Provides Scholarship Information

I am writing in response to several inquiries I have received from graduate students concerning the article on the Undergraduate Academic Affairs Scholarship Center ["UAA Office Opens New Scholarship Center to Aid Students' Searches," Feb. 17].

To eliminate any confusion, the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School still has the responsibility of administering many graduate fellowships, scholarships, and grant awards. We administer federal, industry, endowed, and international (study abroad) scholarships and fellowships. Our staff is available for consultation regarding financial opportunities. A listing of the graduate support opportunities that our office administers will be made available to the UAA for their notebooks. For those graduate students who have not visited our office, please feel free to do so. We are located in Room 3-138.

I would like to close with the following:

When you leave our office financially enlightened;

Then our days are certainly much brightened!

If you leave feeling you needed much more;

I would ask that you not forever close our door.

Instead I say that you please try again, and

I know you'll rate us about a ten!

Jacqueline A. Sciacca

Assistant to the Dean of the Graduate School
