Doctoral students are encouraged to explore a variety of outside funding sources to supplement their Heller funding. Many professional associations, government agencies, private organizations, foundations and institutions offer funding opportunities in the forms of grants, fellowships, scholarships, and prizes.
Some of these sources of funding target particular disciplines, specific student populations, or research projects focusing on a certain theme or geographic location. Many sources are more general in nature. Researching these opportunities could be well worth the effort due to their vast number and range. On this webpage, we have attempted to list examples of places where funding information and resources may be found. However, this information is not exhaustive, and applicants should expand their search beyond these resources.
