Federal Programs and Fellowships Provide Support for Graduate Students


by SIOP Administrative Office

SIOP’s advocacy firm, Lewis-Burke, recently released a report that contains a list of federal government research scholarship, fellowship, and internship programs that provide support for graduate students. 

The federal government programs listed here are organized by the agency that runs the program. Within each agency, the programs are organized by the applying entity, e.g., whether the award is given to the institution or to individuals. For each opportunity, there is provided a program summary, eligibility requirements, size of the program, approximate size and type of award, citizenship requirements, annual due dates, and other special factors. The program websites are provided as a source for more detailed information. 

For the fiscal year (FY) 2014 and FY 2015 budget requests, the Obama Administration has proposed consolidating many of the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs run by the federal government, including many graduate education programs. In FY 2014, Congress protected some of the programs proposed for consolidation while allowing others to terminate as proposed by the administration. For FY 2015, program status is unclear for several programs as congressional appropriations have not yet been finalized. This document notes the status of any programs that were terminated in FY 2014 or are at risk for termination in FY 2015.
