STEM OPPORTUNITIES: Graduate Students | Undergraduate Students

Your Gateway to Federal Opportunities for Graduate Students


The site was established to be the primary source for searching Federally-sponsored opportunities for graduate students and graduate study programs in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) areas. These advanced degree opportunities range from graduate fellowships and research internships that graduate students can apply to directly to funding opportunities for academic institutions to establish innovative graduate training programs.

Users of the site may search for program opportunities using a number of standardized categories - such as by STEM discipline or institutional location where the graduate opportunity takes place - as well as through using a keyword search. Each search result provides a brief program description and a direct link to the sponsoring agency's program website. Interested applicants should follow the sponsoring agency's procedures for applying.

This site was developed through collaboration between the participating agencies of the White House National Science and Technology Council's Committee on STEM Education (CoSTEM) and Alliance and is updated on a regular basis.
