How Can GRAD Fellowships Help You?
What can fellowships do for you? They can fund your research internationally or domestically and help you acquire language proficiency, support your professional development, and connect you to larger networks of peers and scholars. In GRAD Fellowships we believe that applying for grants and fellowships is a critical skill in every graduate student’s professionalization. Our goal is to empower graduate students now with the durable skills they’ll need to become independent grant seekers and competitive applicants in the future. To these ends, the Fellowships Office offers a number of resources for help navigating the complex world of applying to fellowships. We offer tools to identify the right fellowships for you and assistance in putting your best foot forward in application processes. Keep an eye out for one of our many information sessions, like Exploring Fellowships for Master’s Students, or schedule a one-on-one advising appointment with one of our skilled advisors here.
Beyond what’s mentioned above, there are several things you can do to stay up to date on our latest offerings. You can join our Canvas page, a library of curated fellowships lists and other helpful guides, here.
We also offer monthly newsletters that describe upcoming fellowship deadlines. Each newsletter, one in the humanities and social sciences, and the other in STEM, focuses on awards that are accessible to UChicago graduate students. Sign up here.
