Several fellowship award programs exist, which can provide graduate student stipends, tuition allowances, and funds for other purposes (e.g., equipment purchase). Examples of such fellowships are the NASA Graduate Student Research Program (GSRP), National Science Foundation Fellowships, and Space Grant Fellowships. Announcements of these fellowships are typically made annually, both as brochures and on sponsoring websites. Interested students may also obtain information on such fellowships from departmental offices or http://www.uah.edu/graduate.

In addition, endowed fellowships for graduate study exist in several departments. See the graduate website at http://www.uah.edu/graduate for the most current listing.
