Abstract: 

Tired of TA-ing? Want to have the freedom to focus more on your research? Grants and fellowships abound, but which one is right for you? In this presentation, I describe a sampling of the grants and fellowships available for graduate students in a wide array of fields, though I will focus primarily on math and science grants. We will talk about the requirements, deadlines, and tips to help you build a competitive application. Whether you're an advanced undergrad looking ahead to grad school, a grad student in your first or second year, or even looking to your career beyond grad school, there are many opportunities available. After this talk, you'll know where to look, and how to maximize your chances of success. There will be time for questions after the presentation, if time permits, as well as a chance to look over and discuss some (successful!) sample applications for one of the grants covered.
