To identify, apply for, and secure fellowships that support individual research is an integral part of being an academic. The University of Chicago provides fellowship advising and statement editing for master's and doctoral students in all divisions and schools. The application process is an opportunity to practice grant writing, project and time management, as well as networking--skills that are valuable in a variety of careers.  UChicago graduate students excel at securing prestigious external fellowships. Graduate fellowship recipients are honored at the annual Fellows Fete, and their names are published annually.

Graduate students can find internal and external funding opportunities in the University's extensive Fellowship Database and the Featured Fellowships list.  Fellowship staff work with students to provide the following support:

  • One-on-one advising on identifying relevant fellowships and completing fellowship applications
  • Small-group sessions on particular fellowships
  • Background and best-practices on the grant-writing process
  • Fellowship statement review and editing

The University also provides essential information for graduate students about filing tax returns and sponsors student-run programs about financial planning during graduate school.

For questions about student financial aid, graduate students should consult their academic department and division. International students should also contact the Office of International Affairs. Information about annual expenses, tuition, and fees is available through the Bursar’s Office. For details about student loans, consult the Student Loan Administration. Please see related links to the right.
