Funding Opportunities

Plant pathology graduate students have a variety of different funding opportunities ranging from research assistantships and fellowships to travel grants.

Research Assistantships

Research assistantships are available from individual faculty and most plant pathology graduate students are offered research assistantships upon admission. If you are interested in working with a particular faculty member, you should contact them directly to verify whether or not they will be taking on new research assistants for the academic year. Most assistantships are driven by faculty research, so it is best to contact them directly.

University of Minnesota Graduate School

The Graduate School administers funding opportunities, including fellowships, out-of-state tuition remission program for underrepresented and educationally disadvantaged students, and Doctoral Dissertation fellowships.

Dove Fellowship

The Office for Diversity in Graduate Education (ODGE) administers the DOVE Fellowship. The fellowship is awarded to approximately 20 first-year graduate students from underrepresented groups (U.S. citizens or permanent residents).
