Grants & Fellowships

There are considerable benefits to winning a competitive grant or fellowship, including academic prestige, substantial financial assistance, outstanding opportunity for travel, research, and professional development, recognition from your peers, and a deep sense of personal achievement.

Some of the most desirable, competitive, and nationally recognized grants and fellowships involve campus selection committees, so it is important to clearly understand the application process for each.  Investigate the information provided below in “Grants & Fellowships Requiring On-Campus Review," and then call or email the designated contact to discuss the requirements and application procedures in more detail.

Candidates for fellowships should be serious about the process and fully aware of the deadlines.  Request official transcripts and letters of recommendation in advance, and avoid procrastinating on your proposal and  application.  Create a timeline and adhere to it so that you will not be rushing to submit your application.
