External Sources of Funding

Tuition scholarship and fellowship funding is provided to graduate students by a wide variety of governmental and private sponsors. UC’s Financial Aid website, the Office of Nationally Competitive Awards and local and university libraries are potential sources of information about these funding opportunities. The Office of Nationally Competitive Awards provides workshops, application writing assistance and university endorsement (for applicable awards). Students may also visit the Office of Research for more information on upcoming grant opportunities, grant writing workshops, and searchable research opportunity databases.
