It is a well-known fact that external funding sources can have a large influence on admissions outcomes.

Does anyone have information on fellowships that prospective applicants can apply to? The following are under my radar:

  • - NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (deadline passed)
  • - Soros Fellowship (for 1st/2nd gen immigrant applicants)
  • - Ford Foundation Fellowship (for minority applicants)

Are there any else that people are aware of?
