Nationally Competitive Fellowship Programs and Other Funding Opportunities
The Graduate Fellowship Specialist within The Graduate School helps NC State University graduate students compete for external awards and fellowships.
Whereas “internal” awards are those offered by your department or the University, “external” awards are those national and international awards offered by private foundations, government agencies, and corporations. External funders include the National Science Foundation, Ford Foundation, American Association of University Women, National Institutes of Health, Google, Fulbright, Social Science Research Council, and hundreds of others.
