Note:  This list is neither static nor exhaustive.  Faculty whose students apply for fellowships that meet the criteria outlined in the program description – most notably 9 or more months in duration and stipends of more than about $21,000 for PhD students – but are not listed here should simply provide documentation of the fellowship’s eligibility when prompted to do so in the online application.  Only about half of all NFIP applications are associated with pre-approved fellowships.
