New Database of External Funding Opportunities

In addition to funding through their program, graduate students are strongly encouraged to apply for fellowships from external federal agencies, professional organizations, and private foundations. UW–Madison graduate students can use the table below to identify external funding opportunities for which they may be eligible. Graduate programs and the UW–Madison Graduate School may supplement some externally-funded fellowships. Please talk to your program staff about the opportunity to receive tuition assistance and benefits if you are selected for an externally-funded fellowship.

You can select the check-boxes below to filter the results based on your disciplinary division and/or demographics. Your selection will be reflected on the table immediately. There is also a search bar and ways to download this dataset. For accessibility assistance, email Application deadlines in red have passed for this application cycle and will be updated when the agency releases the deadline for the following cycle.
