The Graduate College

Woodland Hall Fellows, 2020-2021

The Graduate College is delighted to introduce the 2020-2021 cohort of Woodland Hall Graduate Fellows!

The Woodland Ellroy Hall Fellowship is a merit-based fellowship program at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University for new master's and doctoral students who are committed to excellence in scholarship and leadership. The Fellowship is named in honor of Woodland Ellroy Hall (1909-2004), who in 1941 was awarded the first graduate degree at N.C. A&T.

Out of our dozens of applicants, we selected our thirteen 2020-2021 Woodland Hall Fellows based on their academic strengths, leadership skills, and scholarly potential, as demonstrated in their Fellowship applications and on-campus interviews. The Fellows will receive a one-year award that provides a stipend, full tuition support, fees and health insurance. The Woodland Hall Fellows will also participate in the Society of Woodland E. Hall Fellows, an organization designed to foster interdisciplinary activity among the Fellowship recipients.
