Extramural Fellowship Directories

To be considered for an extramural fellowship, you usually apply directly to a foundation, organization or other granting agency. Be sure to check the application instructions on the agency’s website.

The Graduate Division’s Fellowships & Financial Services Office maintains a database of extramural funding opportunities, a graduate fellowships LIST and a small library of fellowship directories.

GRAPES Database

Graduate & Postdoctoral Educational Support (GRAPES) Database contains information on over 625 awards for graduate study, dissertation research, study and research abroad, postdoctoral research and more.

Graduate Fellowships LIST

The Gradfellowships-L LIST provides timely email alerts of extramural funding opportunities.
