The Office of Scholar Development and Fellowship Advising offers support to graduate students seeking external funding opportunities to enrich the pursuit of their graduate degree. The goal is to assist students in learning how to identify and apply for merit-based grants and fellowships to support their graduate study. The process of applying for funding can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating. Resources are available to help students successfully navigate the external funding landscape, develop plans for integrating the practice of applying for funding into their graduate careers, craft competitive funding applications, and build professional skills that can have a transformative impact on their graduate scholarship and future careers.

Under the guidance of the office director and faculty mentors, students will seek acceptance to nationally recognized fellowship programs that fund graduate training, public service internships, research and study abroad experiences, and professional opportunities. Students interested in applying for external grants and fellowships are encouraged to submit an OSDFA interest form today!
