This website provides a comprehensive, searchable list of student grants and fellowships funded and/or administered by Yale. Most of these are available from Yale's schools, departments, programs and councils and are open only to Yale students , while others are national competitions to which Yale nominates candidates. A few targeted grants are federally funded and open to non-Yale students.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding Student Grants, please first consult the How to Use guide and FAQ. Email questions or issues to studentgrants@yale.edu.

Yale Alumni: In order to apply for a grant in the Student Grants Database, a grant administrator will have to create an account for you. Please email studentgrants@yale.edu with your name, email address, phone number, and NetID.

These grants and fellowships provide funding for a variety of activities both in the U.S. and abroad for undergrad, graduate and professional students with a wide range of fields of interest. These include:

  • formal coursework and language study abroad
  • research projects, thesis-focused, lab-based, independent, etc.
  • internships and practicum experiences
  • community and public service
  • dissertation and pre-dissertation field research.

These activities will broaden your Yale education, expose you to experiences only available outside the classroom, and afford you occasions to experiment and challenge your abilities.

Identifying potential funding sources is only one step in garnering support for your plans. Be sure to take advantage of faculty and staff who can advise you individually as you pursue various grants and fellowships throughout your years at Yale. They can also advise you about outside funding opportunities that are not included in this database.
