The department strongly urges applicants to investigate external funding possibilities. Fellowships administered outside the university are often quite competitive but well worth the effort, as many of these awards are lucrative and multiyear. In addition, success in outside competitions only strengthens an application. Visit the Graduate School website to find a considerable list of external and internal grants and awards.
