Funding Resources


Find awards

There are a number of excellent resources to help Rutgers graduate students identify grants and fellowships to support their graduate study, including:

Curated Award Lists

GradFund has created specialized lists of awards on the Pivot Database to help graduate students find appropriate fellowships and grants. Use these lists as a starting point, and search the GradFund Database and the Pivot Database to expand on them. In order to access these lists, you will need to sign into your pivot account or use a Rutgers internet connection.

GradFund Database

GradFund maintains a database of graduate and post doctoral fellowship and grant competitions.

Pivot - Community of Science

The Pivot Database is maintained by COS, a ProQuest brand. Rutgers University subscribes to the service to allow students, faculty, and staff to find external awards to support all types of activities.
