SnAP is UIC's internal scholarship information system. Although primarily for undergraduates, there are some opportunities for graduate students and SnAP will, after you complete a general application, show you the scholarships for which you qualify.
The Community of Science Pivot Funding Opportunities database: UIC has an institutional membership for this "editorially maintained database of funding opportunities."
UIUC Graduate College Fellowship Opportunities database [This is the tool we use most often]
Immigrants Rising: A list of scholarships available to undocumented graduate students; slanted toward California, but still useful for national competitions.
The "Fatomei" database: this database is maintainted by Francisco Alberto Tomei Torres, and is especially valuable when searching for fellowships by ethnicity. The page will link you to information on "Nationally Coveted" scholarships; you can then click on links to find scholarships specific to your ethnicity, field of study, gender, and academic level. Be aware that a few links may be out of date.
International Education Financial Aid: This can be used both for U.S. students seeking to go abroad, or international students studying in the United States. It links also to InternationalScholarships.com.
Scholarships, grants, and fellowships that accept applications from non-US citizens: Information shared by the National Association of Fellowship Advisors. Some entries are dated so deadlines should be seen as guideposts and not as definitive.
