The Goizueta Foundation Fellowship at Georgia Tech was made possible by The Goizueta Foundation, established by Roberto C. Goizueta, the late CEO and chairman of the board of directors of The Coca-Cola Company. The fellowship is designed to increase the number of students of Hispanic and Latino origin who enroll at Georgia Tech to pursue their doctoral studies.  

A limited number of fellowships are awarded each academic year. Fellowship recipients will bring exemplary levels of scholarship and innovation to the academic departments that host their study and research. The Goizueta Foundation Fellows will be asked to participate in stewardship activities.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be a new or current graduate student admitted to a Georgia Tech doctoral program.
  • Must be enrolled as a full-time student.
  • Must be of Hispanic and Latino heritage with family residing in the United States (i.e., not an international student planning to move abroad upon graduation).
  • Must submit The Goizueta Foundation Fellowship at Georgia Tech application by midnight on March 6 to OHI

Note: New doctoral students must be invited to submit a Fellowship application by a Georgia Tech departmental representative (such as a graduate school coordinator or school chair). Doctoral students currently enrolled at Georgia Tech who meet the above eligibility requirements may submit an application with the approval of their research advisor.

Complete application packets, including a letter of recommendation, must be received by OHI by midnight on March 6. For more information on applying to graduate school at Georgia Tech, visit the Graduate Studies website at
