William & Ida Friday Graduate Student Fellows Program

To honor Bill Friday’s legacy, the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation and the North Carolina State University College of Education created the William & Ida Friday Graduate Student Fellows Program. The Friday Fellows will be a highly prestigious program that will enable NC State to attract exceptionally capable and dedicated students who will complete their doctoral degrees while contributing to the work of the Friday Institute. These unique experiences will prepare them to make important contributions to education in the State and the nation.

The current goal is to raise funds that will assist several doctoral students each year with tuition and research support, as they complete their graduate studies and dissertations that will further the vision of Mr. and Mrs. Friday of a quality education for all students. 


For more information on the Friday Fellows contact the College of Education Development Office.
