External Fellowships

External fellowships and grants provide a valuable source of financial support, often enabling a graduate student to have considerable freedom to pursue his or her own research interests. Developing proposals for external support also offers valuable professional development opportunities and successful proposals enhance the CV of the student. For these reasons, Graduate Studies strongly encourages faculty, staff, and graduate students to explore all opportunities to obtain external support in the form of fellowships, research funding, and dissertation writing grants.
