L&S Procedures on Fellowships & Traineeships

This document contains information to help department staff prepare appointment letters for graduate assistants receiving a fellowship or traineeship.

General Information

Fellowships and traineeships are monetary awards that students use to pursue graduate studies. In general, fellowships and traineeships require no work obligations on the part of the recipient. 


An appointment letter and Non-Service job aid must be sent to your STS/SA HR Business Partner before the hire will be processed. The HR Business Partner will review the letter to ensure required details are included, but stipulations of the fellowship and traineeship are the department’s responsibility to list accurately (amount, duration…).
