Support for Grant Proposals
CANR Grants Development Office (GDO) is the central processing area for all sponsored research grant and contract proposals within the college. The GDO serves as a liaison between CANR graduate students who are submitting sponsored proposals and fellowships that require the Office for Sponsored Programs approval. The GDO provides advice and assistance with budget preparation, interpretation of sponsor guidelines and government regulations, and electronic proposal submission.
External grants, fellowships, teaching assistantships, scholarships, and departmental awards are some of the ways graduate students may find financial support for their research. Possible funding sources includes:
- UConn Graduate School Funding Sources
- Graduate Financial Assistance: Find graduate financial aid in three categories: merit-based fellowships, assistantships, and scholarships; need-based grants, loans, and employment; and non- need-based loans.

- EPA Grants and Fellowships: Find information on the Environmental Protection Agency grants and fellowship for graduate students such as the
