Ogg Fellowship Requirements

William R. Ogg Fellowship

The William R. Ogg Fellowship (formerly known as the Floyd/Ogg/Cleland Plant and Fungal Biology Final-Year Fellowship) is available for outstanding doctoral students whose research focuses on problems in the field of plant or fungal biology and who are in the final year of their degree program.

A student must submit an application through IU Scholarships on One.IU and then ask his/her/their thesis advisor to submit a nomination (see below for instructions). An advisor may nominate only one student from his/her/their lab.


One semester of support. Amount to be determined. Only one student may apply from each lab. If more than one student from a lab applies for the award, the advisor will be asked to nominate one student.

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 7 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.

To be considered for Biology awards, you must complete a Conditional Application after you have completed the general application. This application requires you to upload a current CV, a personal statement, and the email address of your advisor who will supply a letter of recommendation.

Some awards may require additional application materials to be submitted. IU Scholarships will notify you if you are eligible for awards that require an additional application.


Faculty/Postdoc Fellows: Student applicants provide the name and email address of the recommender as part of their scholarship/fellowship applications. Recommenders will receive an email notification from the IU awards application system with instructions for submitting letters of recommendation.
