Funding & Support

Today’s research climate is highly competitive and global in nature. Our priority is to assist our graduate students in their academic pursuits—and to provide access to funding streams made available by Lehigh and our growing network of government, foundation and organizational partners.

Working together and in a highly collaborative manner, multiple offices across Lehigh support our graduate students and help them navigate all of their funding options. Additionally, each of our four colleges provides its own list of funding opportunities.
