External Fellowships and Funding

Doctoral students are encouraged to seek external funding because fellowships won in national competitions help to bolster academic CVs and also provide supplemental funding for research and writing.  Download potential fellowships and awards pdf file for more information.

Additional information on external funding can be viewed at The Campion Institute website. The Campion Institute assists Fordham students with applications for prestigious fellowships and other forms of external funding.  For graduate students applying for external prestigious fellowships and seeking funding for activities that will strengthen their application, the Campion Institute offers a limited number of Matteo Ricci Summer Fellowships.
