Fellowships, scholarships, and aid can help finance your education, but each type of funding has different intent and requirements. The panelists in this workshop will discuss the differences between funding types so that you can determine what is most appropriate for meeting your needs. Strategies will be shared for how to identify sources of funding across U-M and externally.
