 turn dreams into opportunity!

  • Exploring your post-graduation options?

  • Seeking ways to strengthen your résumé or grad school application?
  • Intrigued by the possibility of international travel?

  • Eager to join a network of accomplished and dynamic people?
  • Interested in opening doors to extraordinary academic, professional, and personal experiences?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, and if you’re committed to academic success, you may be a candidate for a nationally competitive, merit-based fellowship. These prestigious awards provide substantial funding for study, research, teaching, community service, or leadership experiences in the United States or abroad. The opportunities they offer are life-changing!

how can we help?

The Fellowships Office can help you develop the skills and insights you’ll need to become a strong candidate. We can also guide you in identifying fellowship programs that match your experience and interests. Once you’ve selected a program, we’ll provide expertise and resources to assist with all components of your application. Finally, if you’re applying for a fellowship that requires campus nomination, we’ll manage that process.

start now!

Although most fellowships are available only to advanced undergraduates or those who have recently earned a bachelor’s degree, the path to a competitive application begins much earlier. Strong candidates are high-achieving students who have a clear vision for their future and the ability to communicate that vision to others. If you’re a freshman or sophomore, there’s no better time to begin developing your goals, identifying programs that can help you meet them, and building the skills and resources that you’ll need when it’s time to apply. If you’re a junior or senior, we can help you accelerate that process. Take the first step by making an appointment now!
