Graduate Access Fellowship


The goal of the Graduate Access Fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago is to increase the number of students from historically underrepresented groups in graduate education who enter careers as researchers and college faculty. Historically underrepresented groups include: African American, Latinx, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islanders.

Formerly the Abraham Lincoln Fellowship, the Access Fellowship (AF) has a streamlined application and retains the two rounds of applications: recruitment and retention.
