Funding for Education and Research

Funding for My Education or Research

There are some common elements that funders look for from individual applicants, such as students, faculty, and other researchers.

Items they wish to know about may include, but are not limited to:

  • Level of study completed
  • Demographic characteristics (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, single-parent, returning student, etc.)
  • Citizenship/residency (some funders may only be allowed to give to U.S. citizens)
  • Long-term goals
  • Geographic Location of the activity to be funded

Funding types describe how the money may be spent. Here are some of the ways in which you may receive funding:

  • Study (scholarship, fellowship, doctoral completion, doctoral planning, stipend, etc.)
  • Research
  • Travel
  • Conference attendance
