  • GradFund Database
    The GradFund Database search is open to the public and is maintained by the GradFund Office. This database holds nearly 4000 award records, and range from early graduate awards through postdoctoral awards. The database offers two different search modes: funder search and award search. In a funder search, you can look at all of the awards offered by a particular funder. This method is good if you know a particular funder, and want to learn all of the awards they have. You can also look up all the funders with a particular descriptor (e.g. health) or location (e.g. New Jersey). We also offer an award search, which is more like the traditional keyword search. Here, you can look for awards by keywords; they can include research area, degree program, type of award, or stage of study. Try combining your research area or degree program with type of award or stage of study, and see what’s available for you! The results can also be filtered by citizenship
