The Broughton Graduate Fellowship

The Broughton Graduate Fellowship was established by the late William G. Broughton of Schenectady, New York, in honor of his parents, Henry Primm Broughton and Jane Tinkham Broughton.   The Broughton Graduate Fellowship is an award for advanced scholarly research by graduate students that may be part of their dissertation, thesis or final project for a graduate degree at The Sage Colleges.  Students in graduate programs from the Schools of Education, Health Sciences, and Management are eligible and may apply as an individual or a team.  The criteria for selection of Broughton Fellows are:

  • Meritorious graduate research conducted by students
  • Record of outstanding academic achievement
  • Evidence of creative and innovative problem solving

To be awarded, Fellows must maintain outstanding academic status and satisfactory progress in their graduate degree program.  In addition, each Broughton Fellow is required to give a public lecture, at the Sage Graduate Research Symposium or a similar venue.  Broughton Fellows will be recognized at commencement by wearing a blue cord.

Upon submission, the student applicant(s) certify that the application reflects their own original work and includes formal approval for any external sources (i.e.: measurement tools) integrated into the conduct of this study.
