What is the External Graduate Fellowship Institute?

The EGFI has two primary functions:

  • To support graduate students as they seek and apply for external funding by providing resources that will improve the quality of a student’s application. Resources provided by the EGFI include a 3-part workshop series focused on providing information about eligibility, writing a strong application and demystifying the selection process.
  • To provide a central resource for funding opportunities provided by external agencies. Examples of these opportunities include the Graduate Research Fellowship, NDSEG, NASA, and more.
