In this second post for our GradFund checklist series, one of our fellowship advisors has put together a list of things to look for when exploring a funder’s website. This list is meant to help you stay on top of the many tasks that are required when working on your applications.
This post is the first in a series that will propose checklists for graduate students to use as they navigate the external funding landscape. These checklists, while not comprehensive, help guide students in the process of developing an individualized funding plan, in coordination with their advisors and graduate program directors.
