Fellowships, also called grants or scholarships, are awards of money given to support a variety of activities both in the U.S. and abroad. The Yale Grants & Fellowships Database directs current Yale students to numerous opportunities to broaden their education.

Pauli Murray College Richter Summer Fellowship
This award is for independent study and research. It cannot be for mere travel, or for a program of work, however valuable. An internship, for example with a government agency, is a valid use only if there is a significant component of study or research, which must be carefully identified. Creative projects are also valid. “Independent” means that enrollment in courses is not in itself a valid use. Being part of a research team–in biology or archaeology, for example–is valid, since in certain fields research is typically done in teams rather than alone.
Pauli Murray Mellon Research Fellowship for Seniors
This fellowship provides seniors with funding to off-set costs associated with a senior project or senior essay.
