Fellowships and Grants


Need help in writing proposals for fellowships and grants? Participate in the LGS Grant Writing Program.


At LGS and through partnerships with a range of Emory units, we connect our students to funding and fellowship opportunities to help further their research and gain professional experience, including two unique opportunities: the Mellon Graduate Teaching Fellowship (MGTF) and the On Science and Discovery by Emory Researchers (ORDER) fellowship.  

We also encourage our students to seek external funding and fellowships. In addition to the benefits of external funding to your research, these awards are prestigious and visible recognition of your scholarly inquiry and work.
