$250 Scholarship to Graduate Students Who Apply for External Fellowship!

UConn and UConn Health Graduate Students:

Did you submit an application for a nationally-competitive external fellowship like the Fulbright or NSF-GRFP this academic year? If so, you may be eligible for an award of up to $250 through UConn’s National Fellowships Incentive Program (NFIP).

Under this program, full-time UConn graduate students in any degree-granting program who apply for prestigious external fellowships during the 2023-24 academic year (July 1, 2023 through June 10, 2024) are eligible for a $250 scholarship to recognize the work involved in developing proposals and submitting applications for such awards. A list of pre-approved fellowship programs is available here, but most fellowships of duration greater than or equal to 9 months and stipend greater than or equal to $20,000 are eligible. Additional details on the program and award eligibility, along with a link to the application, may be found at http://onsf.uconn.edu/nfip.

The current round of funding will support students who submitted (or will submit) applications for eligible fellowships between July 1, 2023 and June 10, 2024. Students must complete and submit the NFIP application to receive this award. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Funds are limited, and demand for the program has outstripped available funds several times in recent years, so apply soon.
