If you are considering going directly into Graduate School in chemistry or a related scientific field there are graduate fellowships for which you may be qualified. Consult with your professors about whether you are a good candidate for these awards. Entering Graduate School with a fellowship is not necessary to pay your bills, however, a fellowship may provide you with some real additional advantages during your post-baccalaureate career (access to a research group, fewer teaching obligations, highlights for your resume when your Ph.D. is completed, etc.). Below are fellowships to consider as a graduating chemistry major. Be sure to check the eligibility requirements and award obligations carefully. If you are considering graduate school in an area related to, but outside of chemistry, consult with faculty members in other departments that have interests close to yours for advice.
