External Funding Opportunities

Non-UNMC Assistantships and Fellowships

Your assistantship or fellowship does not have to come from UNMC. Many outside corporations, businesses, and agencies provide funding for graduate students. We encourage you to apply for these external funding opportunities, and we provide additional incentives to you for successful applications.

External Funding Opportunities:

External Funding Incentives:

* 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.

If you receive external funding covering at least 75% of your stipend, or receive a score of 30 or better on an NIH F30/F31 application, submit documentation of the award through email.
