In addition to the continuous funding options on the Graduate Financial Support page, the Graduate Student Affairs Office often receives announcements for other University or outside fellowship opportunities. Please refer back to this website often, as new fellowships will be listed regularly.
The Graduate Resource Center (located in Room C114 of the UCI Student Center) holds funding workshop series that include information on how to apply for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) and to other training grants. The GRC also offers writing tutors to assist with proofreading of papers and grants throughout the year.
The Office of Research Development offers a grant review/editing service to faculty, graduate students, and their support staff who would like "another pair of eyes." Generally, turn around is less than two or three days. Contact is Randy Black, Research Development Manager, at email@example.com.
