Graduate School Funding

The Graduate School maintains a Funding Opportunities website which provides links to literally hundreds of funding sources for support of graduate students and their research.

The Graduate School also has limited funding (up to $400) available to support graduate student travel for presentation of research, assistance in emergency situations, etc. The graduate secretary, Lisa Craft, in the Integrative Biology Department office, has application details.

All University business related travel (seminars, conferences, field research, etc.) must be authorized in advance of departure. Contact Sue Platte before travel at 432-9817 or by email at

Finally, Jon Harrison of the MSU libraries maintains a good electronic funding database page.
