Graduate Funding Opportunities administered by the Graduate School

The Graduate School administers University-wide fellowships and grants, based on academic merit (unlike a teaching assistantship or research assistantship, fellowships and grants generally do not require students to work).  Currently enrolled graduate students at the University of Minnesota may apply.  Fellowships usually cover educational and living expenses, and grants usually cover expenses related to specific projects.

Many of the fellowships listed require departmental nomination.  Please contact Heidi Wolff ( with any questions. 

Please visit the Graduate School's website for the most up to date information.
