Scholarships and Grants for Graduate Students

Spend less time worrying about finances and more time focusing on your research.

IHS understands that your academic journey may need funding. We award financial assistance to better equip you to conduct high-quality research so that you can explore the classical liberal tradition, develop the ideas of freedom and advance your work in the academic community.

Many of our scholarship and grant programs involve more than financial assistance. By participating in our funding programs, you gain access to IHS’s vast network of scholars and receive career advice and opportunities.
