I'm familiar with the NSF fellowship, but I was wondering if there are any others I should be looking into to support a PhD in Astrophysics. Any suggestions?

NASA's graduate student researchers program fellowship is pretty decent. They just raised the stipend for 2007-08 too! It is just as competitive as the NSF though. Another possibility is that most schools offer a good number of fellowships for their grad students.

Good luck.
