Dr. James Duban, Director of the UNT Office of Postgraduate Fellowships, urges graduate students to consult the website, to secure application forms through the e-mail addresses listed there, and to contact him (jduban@unt.edu; Tel.: 940/565-2820) to set up a series of appointments to obtain feedback on application essays. Dr. Duban urges graduate students to take advantage of these opportunities.

Graduate students should honor the request on the website to seek additional information exclusively from the sponsoring scholarship agency and from your own university. Dr. Duban is available for that purpose.

Graduate students who have yet to complete their first semester at UNT should be especially attentive to National Science Foundation and Jacob K. Javits Fellowships. Students who anticipate writing a doctoral dissertation in the fall of 2000 will find several dissertation fellowships having fall 1999 deadlines.
