Grants, Scholarships, & Other Financial Aid: Home

Guide to research grants, fellowships, and scholarships and other funding sources.

Best Practices

  • Develop your profile: The variables that define "who you are" will be of interest to funding agencies (academic status, gender, race, religion, origin of birth, skill set, academic interests, artistic interest, passion).
  • Search by subject: Most books or websites on funding sources have a subject index/search. Read the descriptions and narrow your selection to those that fit your profile.
  • Identify likely sources: Professional associations may advertise fellowships for graduate students or postgraduates. Foundations have as their mission to provide funding for either individuals or institutions all in the name of supporting good causes or projects.
  • Use portals of information: the school you attend or will be attending will list opportunities in their financial aid office or website. The library collects books on funding sources and provides links to relevant agencies and websites.
