Graduate Research Fellowships
The Mike Loya Graduate Research Fellows Program is designed to benefit students pursuing a graduate degree at the College of Engineering or the College of Business Administration.
The fellowship allows students to form a close-knit academic group that focuses on applied research in entrepreneurship and innovation.
Students are selected based on academic prowess and involvement, interest, and willingness to learn entrepreneurial programs.
Selected students will become Mike Loya Graduate Research Fellows (GRF) and will receive a $15,000 stipend per year distributed in a monthly stipend of $1,250.
Students are expected to be at the Center 20 hours a week working on interesting research projects, dynamic conversations, workshops, daily center activities, and community engagement programs.
To qualify as fellows, applicants must fulfill the following minimum requirements:
- Submit a letter of interest. Highlight your future professional interests, your experience working for small businesses, startups, or if you are familiar at all. If you don’t have the experience, tell us why you want to learn more about innovation and entrepreneurship.
- Acceptance letter from the Graduate School.
