The Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships serves as the University of Pennsylvania's information hub and primary support office for Penn students and alumni considering applying for major grants and fellowships. CURF aims to demystify these opportunities to help undergraduate and graduate students and alumni determine the most appropriate awards for which to apply. CURF’s searchable Fellowships Directory allows you to search for opportunities based on your student or alumni status. See details of fellowship eligibility and brief descriptions.

If you are (or soon will be) an active applicant for any fellowship, please sign up for the CURF Mailing List to receive regular updates on fellowships and related opportunities.
