What Are Fellowships?

Fellowships are funding! They are competitive, merit-based monetary awards that support a wide range of activities. These include:

  • Research
  • Internships
  • Projects
  • Study Abroad

Yale Student Grants Database

The Yale Student Grants Database is the single best place to search for Yale funding and campus information for external awards which require application through Yale. It is searchable by class year, keyword or eligibility.

Not all Yale funding is listed in the Database: stay alert for any opportunities which may be available through academic departments or residential colleges but are not listed in the Database.

Alumni can access the Yale Student Grants Database using their Yale netID and password, even after other Yale systems are no longer accessible, although passwords may need to be updated first.

  • If you have forgotten your password or need to update it, see here.
  • If you have an updated password but still cannot access the Database, please email

Note: The Yale Student Grants Database does not contain listings for non-Yale awards which do not have a campus application process. To complement a search of the Database, you might like to check the resources below.
