External Funding

UNMC Graduate Studies encourages and incentivizes each of our eligible graduate students to apply for external fellowship grants. The following three (3) pages summarize some rich resources on grant opportunities for graduate students as well as resources to help in writing them.

Incentives for students to apply for external funding:

*The external funding must be awarded to the student as the result of a competitive review process. Eligible funding programs include (but are not limited to) NIH F30 or F31 individual fellowships, American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellowships, PhRMA Pre Doctoral Fellowships, and Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowships.

Procedure to request the external funding scholarship:

Any student who receives external funding covering at least 75% of his/her stipend, or who receives a score of 30 or better on an NIH F30 or F31 application, should email documentation of the external award to unmcgraduatestudies@unmc.edu.
