Graduate Scholarships, Grants and Fellowships

Your major resources for finding funding at the graduate level are your faculty advisor and the graduate programs to which you apply. In addition, the UNH Fellowships Office assists high-achieving, UNH students in applying for competitive national and international scholarships and fellowships to help fund their graduate studies.

There are also numerous resources that provide both information and funding assistance for graduate study:

  • The Council of Graduate Schools -- a great place to learn about the types of graduate school funding; has links to fellowship award sites for different disciplines.
  • The Cornell Fellowship Notebook -- a comprehensive database of graduate fellowship funding across disciplines; vast majority of information for students applying to or attending any US graduate school; searchable by discipline, deadline or keyword(s).
  • -- a good source of general graduate school information, including a directory of graduate study programs by discipline/school and financing information.
  • Soros Fellowships for "new Americans" pursuing graduate studies. Student must be not older than thirty years of age and a naturalized citizen or resident alien or have parents, both of whom are naturalized citizens.
  • UNH Graduate School -- provides general information about funding opportunities for graduate school, including access to SPIN, a searchable data base that has detailed and timely information about thousands of Federal, non- federal and international funding opportunities.
  • UNH McNair Graduate Opportunity Program -- graduate-study preparation program for eligible UNH students. If you are eligible for the CFAR Student Support Services Program and/or you are a multicultural student, make sure you check out this site.
