Information Session on All External Fellowships and Scholarships (each September)
At the beginning of each Fall semester, the Graduate School and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs hold a lunch meeting on graduate student fellowship opportunities. This Brown Bag Lunch Seminar presents information on the range of fellowship and scholarship opportunities that are available, how to search the CoS Funding Opportunities database, and some basic advice regarding the application process. Past fellowship awardees and faculty who have supported students in gaining fellowships are invited to share advice on how to be successful with your application.
The next Brown Bag Lunch Seminar on Graduate Student Fellowship Opportunities will be held on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 from 12-1 p.m. in AMU, Room 163. Feel free to bring your own lunch.
Fund Research Abroad Through a Fulbright Fellowship (each February)
