Other sources of support
There are a number of awards and sources of funding available to graduate students. The Graduate School has a searchable Fellowships database which lists awards available internally and externally for graduate students and post-docs. In the past, GGD graduate students have successfully applied to fellowships from National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship; American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellowship; National Institutes of Health Individual Predoctoral Kirschstein Fellowship.
The Graduate School also provides travel funding to enable full time research-degree students to travel to scientific research conferences or research travel. For specific information and application materials, go to the Graduate School Travel Funding.
