Fellowships & Other Financial Support

Fellowship support is available from the University, from the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts, and from the Glenn Korff School

UNL Graduate Studies Endowed Fellowships are available on a competitive basis.

From the College, the Hixson-Lied Fellowships in Music are awarded to Graduate Assistants in the Glenn Korff School of Music who possess credentials of the highest quality. Students may hold these fellowships through the usual time period of completing their degree. Awards to Hixson-Lied Fellows are currently valued at $4500 per year in addition to the GA stipend.

From the Glenn Korff School, fellowship support is available from the Glenn Korff School of Music on a competitive basis. Students do not self-nominate, but rather their names are put forward by faculty in each area of the school during the admissions process. Most fellowships are added on top of the award of a GA and its stipend, but some do not require that.

Information about student loans may be found at the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, 16 Administration Building, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE 68588-0411, (402) 472-2030.
