Hertz Foundation Graduate Fellowships
http://www.hertzfoundation.org/
The Fannie and John Hertz Foundation Graduate Fellowships are based on merit (not need) consisting of a cost-of-education allowance in lieu of tuition and fees and a personal stipend of $25,000 over the nine-month academic year. The fellowship supports academic versus professional graduate study, e.g., study for the Ph.D. Only those studying the physical sciences whose work will have real world applications versus being purely theoretical are eligible. This focus, however, may be broadly construed. The official description of the fellowship also talks about the goals of the Hertz Foundation fellowship as being related to "the enhancement of the defense potential and technological stature of the United States." Again, this should not be taken literally. Students with an excellent academic credentials, who plan to study in some are of the physical sciences, should definitely consider applying for the Hertz. The Hertz offers very generous support. Fellows must attend one of the Foundations tenable schools. Michigan State University students are eligible to apply but should expect to attend one of the three dozen of the schools where students usually go to study.

SWE Scholarships are only open to women pursuing baccalaureate or graduate degrees in engineering or computer science, as well as engineering and computer science students or having graduated from ABET-accredited engineering programs.

Zonta International
Amelia Earhardt Fellowship
http://www.zonta.org/WhatWeDo/InternationalPrograms/AmeliaEarhartFellowship.aspx
The Zonta International Foundation established this award to honor famed air pioneer and Zontian, Amelia Earhart. The award is for women who have completed at least one year of graduate study in an area of science or engineering which is closely related to advanced studies in the aerospace-related sciences. While often thought of as award just for those studying aerospace sciences, awards have been made for graduate study in such fields as aerospace, engineering, astronomy, astrophysics, biomedical engineering, computer science, fluid mechanics, geological oceanography, meteorology, molecular biology and space medicine. Therefore, this grant supports a wider range of study than commonly thought. Thirty-three to thirty-five grants of $10000 each are made yearly.

FastWeb
http://www.fastweb.com/.
If you have access to the world wide web and are willing to fill in the online forms, this service promises a free customized list of financial aid sources. FastWeb is actually a searchable database of more than 400,000 private sector scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from more than 3,000 sources for all levels of higher education. First-time visitors have to register (first and last name and a user ID), then complete a profile, including background and fields of study. Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed. Approximately 500 new scholarships are added to the database daily, so registrants can stay current. Provided courtesy of Financial Aid Information Page and Student Services, Inc. created by Mark Kantrowitz and sponsored by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.
