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, and a list of recent winners is 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:
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.
