Finding Fellowships

Where Can I Find Funding of Graduate School?
Search Strategies

Start your search here:

  • Your Network and Department: Talk with other students, faculty, and staff about what types of funding current and past students have secured to fund their education. Networking has a two-fold purpose: it may give you some ideas of opportunities and also lets others know you are looking (you never know when something may come up).
  • List of Fellowships: The Office of Fellowships and Awards provides an abbreviated list of fellowships; some are offered through the Graduate School and some are from outside organizations. We are happy to advise and answer any questions you have about the application process for these fellowships.
  • Graduate Funding Information Service (GFIS): This service, which is partially funded by the Graduate School, is located in the Research Commons of the Allen Library (South Wing). GFIS helps UW students learn how to search for funding opportunities for the masters and doctoral level. 
  • The Internet: Use your favorite search engine and start looking. Do not limit yourself to a search under your own discipline—be as broad as possible (research area, geographic location, personal demographics).
