Resources for Graduate Students


GradFund is a service of the School of Graduate Studies. We assist graduate students with identifying and applying for merit-based research grants and fellowships to support graduate study and research. GradFund offers individual meetings to discuss funding opportunities with graduate students, as well as workshops, presentations and mentoring programs throughout the year. We administer submissions of Fulbright applications for matriculated Rutgers graduate students and recent alumni.


The Rutgers University iJOBS Program, funded by the National Institutes of Health, exposes life science PhD students and postdocs to a range of non-academic career options and empowers them to pursue their career goals. In 2014 Rutgers became 1 of only 17 schools in the country to be awarded an NIH BEST grant and iJOBS programming has now expanded to all campuses of Rutgers as well as Princeton, Rowan, NJ Institute of Technology and Stevens Institute of Technology. iJOBS maintains research as the primary trainee focus, while offering programming to broaden trainee's perspectives, experiences and knowledge to facilitate pursuit of academic and non-academic careers.

Community-Based Counseling

Our Community-Based Counseling is based on a model known as a “Meso Practice.” It’s a midpoint between a micro (individual) and a macro (public health) approach to providing mental health treatment.

In Community-Based Counseling, CAPS counselors are placed within departments, professional schools, and cultural centers throughout campus at set days and times. By embedding themselves in these spaces, counselors are able to build relationships, familiarity, comfort, and trust with the students, staff, and faculty within the community.

Let’s Tele Talk

Let’s Talk is available remotely via phone and video appointments. Conversations with CAPS counselors are private and confidential.

  • To schedule an appointment, call 848-932-7884, and leave a voicemail with your full name, phone number, and RU ID.
  • Please speak slowly and clearly into the phone. Calls are returned promptly during regular business hours.
  • Please note: CAPS will return your call from a blocked number, so please set your phone to allow blocked numbers and set up your voicemail to allow for messages.

All other CAPS services are also available remotely. Please leave a message at 848-932-7884 to schedule an appointment
