CoS Funding Opportunities Database

We also recommend that students explore the CoS (Community of Science) Funding Opportunities database. This database provides the most comprehensive information regarding funding information available on the Internet, and includes extensive information specifically on student fellowship opportunities.  

The CoS database is accessible on all Marquette computers (or on your home computer if you use Marquette’s virtual private network) at

Opportunities are listed for faculty and for graduate and undergraduate students.  Sponsors include private foundations, public agencies, national and local governments, corporations and more. You can do a one-time search or set up an account which saves up to 40 different funding searches. Directions on how to set up an account can be found at ORSP Grant Database or by contacting Christy Lennon at 288-3642. 

To conduct a search for fellowships or scholarships on the CoS Funding Opportunities Web site, go to the Web site. Under "CoS Funding Opportunities", click on "Search CoS Funding Opportunities".

There are multiple ways to search this database, but we think the following is the most efficient. Click on “Advanced Search,” and on the next page click on “Switch to Classic View” at the upper left corner. On the search page, at minimum enter your field of study at the top, “Graduate Student” under Requirements, and “Training or Scholarship or Fellowship” under Funding Type. Then click on "Do the Search." After the search page appears, you can run the cursor over the icon of the Grant Title to get an abstract of the funding opportunity and you can click on the name of the grant to get a more complete description (including deadlines, eligibility requirements, Web site url, etc.).
