IU Funded Fellowships and Awards for Graduate Students

Fellowships and awards are great financial support options for graduate school. Graduate students at IU find support through internal fellowships and awards, which is money that comes directly from IU.  Students must be nominated by their schools or departments to be considered for one of our internal awards. Please see below for a list of deadlines and to learn more about the nomination process.
