External Fellowship Opportunities
Graduate and Postdoctoral

 

Pop Bio encourages all of its students to apply for external funding opportunities. Our students hold a number of prestigious multi-year awards from such government agencies as: The National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF-GRFP), the Environmental Protection Agency Science to Achieve Results Fellowship (EPA STAR), the National Defense Science and Engineering Program (NDSEG), and the Krell Institute Dept. of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE-CSGF) just to name a few.

These multi-year fellowships provide competitive stipends, in-state fee remission, non-resident tuition (if applicable), research and travel funds, and excellent opportunities for students to attend conferences with their peers and world-renowned academics.

Hint: Many of these agencies allow for college seniors to apply before admission to grad school. Not only is this good practice in applying for funding, applying early can give you a competitive edge on your admission applications.
