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.

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.
