In the past couple of weeks, I described different types of funding for graduate study, and why you should get external funding while a graduate student. And a few weeks ago, I shared my list of over 120 post doc opportunities related to Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS). People found that list helpful, so today I’m sharing another list I compiled (with graduate student help), of over 50 (hopefully more by the time this posts; it’s a work in progress) graduate fellowship and grant opportunities also related to HDFS.
As with the post doc list, it’s a broad list. I did limit it to ones that can fund you during grad school, and excluded fellowships that require you are a student at a specific university. The list includes some that cover tuition as well as a stipend, and some that are stipend only. Some are only for a couple thousand dollars (e.g., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.), and others are for tuition plus a generous stipend (e.g., NSF, tuition plus $34,000 a year for 3 years). There are dissertation-specific grants, and grants that you can apply for earlier in your graduate education.
Some are very general, such as any discipline, or any social science discipline. Others are more specific, and for these, areas of research vary widely, and include childhood, health, diversity, cultural studies, studies of specific cultures, education, evaluation, gender, social services, and brain sciences. They are certainly relevant to HDFS students, but also to students from multiple psychology areas (e.g., developmental, health), social work, education, sociology, gender and sexuality studies. Some are only for US citizens, but some are only for non-US citizens. There are some that are specific to women or to underrepresented ethnic/racial groups, veterans or LGBTQ individuals.
Due dates range widely, with some in summer, fall, winter, or spring.
I make no claims that any information, including information about citizenship requirements, is accurate.
I hope that you find this information useful, as you plan out your funding for your time in graduate school.

If you have suggestions of other graduate fellowships or that fit these criteria, please share them and I will add them to the list. If you find errors or broken links, please let me know.
