Broadening Participation Funding Opportunities

We are planning to build an opportunity section geared specificially toward broadening participation. For now, this is a place holder list. 

The Southern Regional Education Board Doctoral Scholar Program

The Southern Regional Education Boardʼs (SREB) Doctoral Scholar Program was established more than 20 years ago to increase the number of underrepresented scholars who earn the Ph.D. and to address the need for a more diverse college faculty. The SREB provides multiple layers of support, including, but not limited to financial assistance and research funding, but also career counseling, job postings and a scholar directory for networking and recruiting.

NSF GRFP Guide Online

This Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) course is a one-of-a-kind, self-paced online guide that prepares you for success on Fellowship proposals. While it focuses on the NSF Graduate Fellowship Proposal (GRFP), this guide would be useful for any fellowship or internship proposal. If you are interested in taking this course and have a question about the fee, please contact the ADRGS, Dr. Vrushali Bokil for assistance.

The Graduate school has some great information from a workshop, including slides, video presentation and applicant resources. Check it out here

The College of Science Student Travel Award (COSSTA)

The College of Science Student Travel Fund awards $500 to graduate students in the College to encourage and support research presentations in international professional conferences. COSSTA are awarded quarterly (February, May, August, November), although we will accept applications at anytime. A departmental or grant match is required.

OSU Graduate School's list of external fellowships

The graduate school has assembled a list of national and global fellowships where students may apply directly to the granting organization or agency. 

PNNL-OSU Distinguished Graduate Research Program

Through the PNNL-OSU Distinguished Graduate Research Program, Ph.D. candidates will earn a stipend along with benefits while on appointment under a prestigious graduate committee on nationally relevant research. It is a unique opportunity to tap into the knowledge and world-class research infrastructure available at both institutions.
