Graduate students may receive financial support for their studies from many different sources, and we encourage both prospective and current graduate students to explore all the different options to identify those that best suit their needs. We also recommend that all graduate students consult with their advisors and with faculty and staff in their graduate programs because they are the most likely to know about degree- or discipline-specific sources of support. In addition, graduate students should take advantage of the resources offered through the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships both to identify possible sources of funding and to get advice on preparing successful applications. Here you will find information on both internal (within UConn) and external (outside of UConn) opportunities for students to seek aid, scholarships, or other financial assistance.

Additionally, here are a few helpful financial aid guides for doctoral students:
