FYI if you don't know about these fellowships, you should try to find someone who has one or has had one. The "stipend" is enough to live on and there is an option to get healthcare as well, even though it can sound like there isn't. You don't get vacation days, but that can usually be arranged with your supervisor. The pay is higher for PhD's.
There are a bunch of other fellowships on zintellect. Please spread around to those who may not know at other schools.
