Searching for Funding

Start early, usually one year before you start Graduate School

  • Application deadlines often occur early in the fall for fellowships or late spring for assistantships.

Review Understanding Funding

Query the Graduate School Funding Database

Contact your graduate program

  • Teaching and research positions are most often available through your department or college.

Search outside your department

Use your network

  • Use your network of colleagues, faculty, and staff to identify funding opportunities for graduate school as well as future career opportunities. Review the Networking Narratives module on the Professional Development Community.
