Fellowships and Grants

Fellowships and scholarships offer fantastic ways to enhance and extend engagement with environmental issues at Northwestern. These programs provide the resources, financial and otherwise, to pursue several opportunities, including laboratory research, travel, research assistantship, independent research, specialized and/or professional study, and graduate education. While scholarships like the Fulbright and the Goldwater are very popular and competitive, smaller, lesser known programs can also be beneficial. 

Most of the programs listed below entail extensive application processes that must be initiated far in advance from the application deadlines. Many of the external fellowships, such as the Udall, have an internal selection process by which Northwestern chooses nominees to compete with students from colleges and universities across the country. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that students research fellowship options and their eligibility requirements and applications thoroughly in consultation with the Office of Fellowships.



Many of the following grants are administered by Northwestern, and applicants must be nominated.  For more information, visit the Office of Fellowships Website.
