The Graduate Funding Information Service (GFIS) helps current and admitted UW graduate students learn skills and tools to find funding for graduate school-related expenses. Please email GFIS to schedule individual appointments or request information by email. Students can also visit the GFIS guide on finding funding and blog to learn about campus funding resources, databases, search strategies, and events. GFIS hosts workshops through the virtual Research Commons, and works with UW departments to design discipline-specific workshops and resources for their graduate students.

Topics Covered in Meetings and Presentations:

  • Where to start searching for funding
  • When to search
  • Kinds of funding
  • Crafting search terms
  • Unfortunately, we are not able to provide individualized lists of awards
