The following is a summary of the funding opportunities available to students enrolled in the Graduate School–New Brunswick and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences:
The Graduate School will award 13 University and Louis Bevier Dissertation Completion Fellowships for the 2017-2018 academic year. Doctoral students in both schools are eligible to apply. The fellowships carry a stipend of $25,000, health insurance (if needed), and tuition remission for up to 2 research credits per semester (no more than 4 total for the academic year).
Visit the University and Louis Bevier Fellowships page to learn more about these fellowships and to download the application.
Special Study Awards are intended to assist students who wish to benefit from educational opportunities away from campus. These include specialized workshops, summer programs in advanced methods, courses in which rare languages are taught, and other forms of specialized training that entail fees or travel expenses and that are not currently offered at Rutgers.
Pre-Dissertation Awards are intended for students at the beginning of their doctoral research--i.e. those who have completed their qualifying/candidacy exams--who would materially benefit from field-specific research opportunities. These awards are specifically designed to help students gather preliminary data in order to lay the groundwork for their dissertation projects.
Visit the Special Study & Pre-Dissertation Awards page to find out more about these awards.
The Graduate School announces the opening of its new Awards Portal, an online system designed to streamline the application process for Conference Travel Awards. If you are interested in applying for an award, you must do so via the online system (even if you have already submitted a paper application to your graduate program).
Please see the Conference Travel Awards page for more details.
Each spring, the Graduate School honors faculty members and graduate students for outstanding contributions to teaching and research. Each Graduate Program Director is entitled to nominate one person for each of these awards. Students interested in being considered should contact the director of their graduate program.
Awards are presented at a reception in late April hosted by the dean of the Graduate School. Graduate students enrolled in the Graduate School-New Brunswick and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences are eligible for nomination or competition.
