C.L. “Shot” Senn Fellowship

The Graduate School is pleased to announce the C.L. "Shot" Senn Fellowship. This $1,000 fellowship will be awarded each year to an Auburn University graduate student or incoming graduate student who: 

  • Is enrolled in the Auburn University Graduate School;
  • Has a minimum college GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale; and
  • Is a former Auburn University Division I athlete whose NCAA eligibility has ended.

Selection of the recipient will be made by a selection committee appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School in coordination with the Athletics Department. Selection will be made on the basis of academic and athletic achievement, as well as demonstrated financial need.
