School Location

Houghton, Michigan

Michigan Tech is located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula near Lake Superior. Lake Superior, many forests and parks, and rivers and smaller lakes offer outstanding year-round recreational activities. Houghton, Michigan is small, but the university gives the town a "campus" atmosphere. The school has a large RPCV community.

About the Award

The Michigan Tech Graduate School offers the National Service Graduate Fellowship to students who have previously provided service to the United States. Eligible graduate students will receive a fellowship that will reduce their tuition rate.

The primary goal of the National Service Graduate Fellowship is to better meet the needs of students who have provided service to our country and allow them to bring their wealth of real-world experience to Michigan Tech.

The National Service Graduate Fellowship is awarded to on campus degree and non-degree seeking graduate students in one of the following three categories:

Military personnel
AmeriCorps volunteers
Peace Corps volunteers

Eligible students who are accepted into the Graduate School will be notified once their required documentation has been received and verified. Recipients of the National Service Graduate Fellowship will receive a tuition award reducing their graduate tuition rate.
