Graam Fellowship Requirements

Dona G. Graam Fellowship

The Dona G. Graam Fellowship is the result of a bequest from Dona G. Graam to assist female graduate students in the IUB Department of Biology who are engaged in research work and/or as teaching assistants in zoology, providing support toward the payment of salaries as teaching or laboratory assistants. The fellowship is given out intermittently as funds accrue in the account.


Open to female graduate students who are in the IUB Department of Biology's Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior; Genome, Cell, and Developmental Biology; or Zoology graduate program and are engaged in research or teaching work in zoology. Must be eligible to enroll in G901.

Apply through One.IU

Search in One.IU for the “IU Scholarships” tile. The system will optimize opportunities by matching you to recommended awards.

To get started, you must initiate a general application by answering 5 required questions and electronically signing before submitting. The application contains many questions designed for undergraduate applicants to IU. Continuing undergraduate and graduate students need only complete the required pieces. The general application may be created at any time during the academic year.

For Biology awards, you must upload a current CV, a personal statement, and the email address of a faculty member who will supply a letter of recommendation. Refer to specific awards for additional required materials.
