Fellowship Application Workshop Series (Fall 2021)

Fellowship Application Workshop Series

The Graduate School is excited to offer a workshop series for graduate students focused on applying for fellowships from external agencies and foundations. In this workshop series, you will learn the basics of grant applications, what funders look for, and how to write a compelling application. Even if you are not ready to apply to a fellowship at this point, this series can be a great professional development tool.

Reasons to participate your grant writing skills

  • Enhance your grant writing skills
  • Get advice and feedback on writing strong personal statements
  • A fellowship allows you to focus on your research and/or dissertation writing instead of work requirements
  • Fellowships are great CV enhancers and some provide additional networking opportunities
  • Many fellowships do or may receive additional financial support from the Graduate School
