Available Help

Email us for help learning how to search for funding, including:

  • An informational email
  • A 30-minute, one-on-one Zoom meeting
  • A presentation for a UW department, school, organization, or class
  • Unfortunately, we are not able to provide individualized lists of awards

Quick Tips: Timing is everything!

  • The earlier you start searching, the more awards will be available
  • Most deadlines for fellowships, scholarships, and grants are 6-12 months before they pay out
  • Assistantships have quicker turnaround times, often months to weeks before the start date
