Educational Scholarship Programs

Students with talent in the sciences, especially those relating to food, natural resources and human sciences, will make the research discoveries of tomorrow. Today, they need training to realize their potential. Funding education can be a challenge, especially for students from communities that are under-represented in the scientific workforce. NIFA has two types of funding options to ensure more talented students can achieve their research career goals in agriculture.

  • Funding for universities
    • National Needs Graduate and Postgraduate Fellowship (NNF) Grants Program
    • Higher Education Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP)
  • Funding for fellows
    • Afri Fellowship Grants Program

HOW RESEARCH CHANGED MELISSA’S LIFE

As a first-generation transfer student, Melissa Krook came to the UW knowing she wanted to study psychology, and cautiously dreaming about a career as a research psychologist. After participating in the Undergraduate Research Program, she was certain that was the career path for her. Now, she’s hard at work on several applications and is eager to share her story and tips with you.

Thank you to our dedicated committee members
UAA-OMSFA-Heart icon-50x44.pngThank you Fulbright, Luce and Martin scholarship champions! Although fall quarter just started, you have already been hard at work supporting scholarship applicants. We are so appreciative of your time and efforts! Forty-six faculty, staff, post-docs and retirees dedicated their time on a Saturday to interview UW students applying for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Our Luce Scholars Program campus selection committee reviewed and interviewed candidates earlier this month as well. And the Martin Family Foundation campus committee and board members reviewed applications and interviewed candidates throughout the summer. Thank you!

Call open for Erasmus Mundus TROPIMUNDO Master programme – Deadline 30 November 2018

The Université libre de Bruxelles is coordinating the Erasmus Mundus TROPIMUNDO Master programme, for which the European Commission offers a certain number of fully covering scholarships for EU and non-EU students. There are no country restrictions whatsoever. As Erasmus Mundus is the educational excellence brand of the European Commission we are not allowed to use any other criteria than excellence to select the scholarship holders.

As we are looking for excellent candidates, would it be possible for you to disseminate the information below among your contacts?

This information is of particular importance for BIOLOGY students seeking a scholarship to study abroad.

TROPIMUNDO is the first International Master in Tropical Biodiversity and Ecosystems (2 years, 120 ECTS) that allows students to delve into the interlinked ecosystems under threat by spending a full second semester of course work and field schools in the African rainforest, the Asian mangrove forest or Amazonian tropical rain forest and Caribbean tropical insular ecology, and a fourth semester dedicated to thesis work related to tropical biodiversity and ecosystems. The other two semesters are covering basic and specialized courses in Belgium, Italy, France and French Guyana.

The European Commission provides a certain number of full scholarships for students from EU and non-EU students. Selected scholarship holders will have their tuition fees and mobility covered in addition to receiving full insurance and monthly allocations*.

The first call for 2019-2020 applicants in need of a scholarship is now open and the deadline for application is 30 November 2018.

*Please note availability of scholarships will depend on financing by the European Commission (results expected in July 2019 for students scheduled to start their MSc Programme in September 2019). Please note that for 2018-2019 no scholarships have been offered.

Further information on the TROPIMUNDO programme and the application procedure can be found at www.tropimundo.eu .
