I got this fellowship as well but im a bit confused about what exactly the total amount is. You get instate tuition, which is equivalent to 13k a year and then get paid 4k a year for working right?
I received my offer in the mail today, too (I'm in MN, fwiw) I got the Graduate Fellowship (with $4000 stipend) and a seperate renewable 10k/yr scholarship. I'm stoked about the offer and opportunity to do research as a 2L & 3L, but I'm also a bit confused as to what the offer amount actually is.
The difference in instate and out of state tuition in 2010-2011 is only 10k (23,800 vs 33,800), so I'm not sure that the difference between next year's resident and non-resident tuition would spike up to 13,000 (the amount it sounds like in the letter). So I guess I'm not sure if it should be interpreted as: We're waiving out of state tuition (a $13,000 value) and you'll earn a $4,000 stipend OR we're waiving your out of state tuition ($10k value for the 2010-2011 year), plus giving you 13K fellowship, plus you'll earn a 4k stipend.
I guess I'll probably call them tomorrow or shoot them up an email to clarify. Confused as I am, I'm suuuuuuuuuuuper happy with my offer nonetheless.
