Full-time graduate (pre-doctoral) students in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology typically receive full tuition reimbursement and highly competitive stipends in the form of teaching assistantships and graduate research assistantships. In addition, the Department and the Graduate School New Brunswick offer several fellowships and awards in order to recognize the achievements of graduate students in research and teaching as well as to provide financial support for professional development. Below is a list of fellowships and awards that are offered annually. Graduate students are encouraged to apply for these opportunities.

External graduate research fellowships: In addition to fellowships from Rutgers, many federal funding agencies or private organizations offer predoctoral fellowships. Graduate students are encouraged to apply for these fellowships. A compilation of predoctoral fellowships can be found at the Chaser Resource Center for Graduate Student External Support.
