Where to Look for Funding

A few good places to start:

1. National Science Foundation.  Don’t be fooled, even though this site has many a STEM fellowship, Anthropology and Humanities fellowships are listed on this site as well.  If you are doing research, then its SCIENCE!

2. Pivot.  This site connects graduate students to moo-lah, big time.  You can search thousands of funding opportunities using key words.  The best part is that its FREE, (unlike other major funding aggregators).

3. Professional Organizations:  Locate orgs in the industry in which you are focusing your research.  The National Press Club awards fellowships to journalism majors, the Coordinating Council for Women in History awards fellowships to (female) history majors, and the Mycological Society of America awards fellowships to… mycology majors! (Well, bio majors studying all things fungi.)    

Once you find fellowships that fit well with your research, be sure to attend an EDGE Writing Workshop for External Funding.  Attend one or all three parts of this series to ensure that your application is complete and competitive.  Now that you have this handy-dandy list, in the words of Wordsworth, “To begin, BEGIN!”
