All students accepted into graduate programs within AgBio receive financial support from their supervisor's research funds and/or scholarships. Funding amount and duration varies; more information about typical funding within each department can be found in the respective graduate student handbooks. Prospective students are encouraged to discuss funding with their potential supervisors. Scholarships and awards are available through the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, the College of Graduate Studies and Research, and through various external funding agencies or industry partnerships.

Academic scholarships

The College of Agriculture and Bioresources administers some graduate level awards. Graduate students can apply for college-administered scholarships by filling out our online graduate awards application available in May each year. Please read all questions carefully and answer as accurately as possible.  For these scholarships, note that students are no longer required to submit unofficial transcripts or letters of support from their supervisors.

Applications are accepted May 1 to May 31 each year. All current graduate students will be contacted by a graduate program assistant and notified of the application deadline.

Activities may include, but are not limited to: conference registration or travel; travel to other locations for course work or experiential learning purposes; costs incurred as part of team projects or special topics courses; academic exchanges with other institutions.
