Grant and Fellowship Opportunities

The Graduate Student Grants Service (GSGS) provides University of Massachusetts Amherst graduate students with information on and assistance with applications for external (non-University) grants and fellowships to support study and research. The service takes several forms: departmental workshops, information sessions on key fellowships, and access to three searchable funding databases through the website GSGS also provides individual consultations in their office, 517 Goodell Bldg., by appointment or during office hours.

The Graduate Student Grants Service also distributes a biannual newsletter, Grantscape, which lists important upcoming grant and fellowship deadlines by discipline. Copies are sent to all graduate departments, posted on the GSGS bulletin board, and distributed at workshops. The office also administers the Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowship, which has an institutional application process.
