The University of Chicago has a policy of non-discrimination. We consider students on the basis of individual merit and without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, or other factors irrelevant to participation in the programs of the University. We are committed to building diversity and to providing appropriate resources and accommodations for students with disabilities. The BSD expects and encourages all graduate students to apply for fellowship opportunities for which they are eligible. For US citizens and permanent residents this may include NIH and NSF predoctoral fellowships. US citizens and permanent residents may also be eligible per the funding announcement for one or more of our institutional NIH T32 awards and Dept of Education GAANN awards (listed below).   To explore other fellowships, including those open to international students, please visit the UChicagoGRAD fellowship database.
