Fellowships & Scholarships

Fellowships and scholarships provide exciting opportunities for students and alumnae to explore and deepen their academic, personal and professional interests in the U.S. and abroad. Fellowships serve as an investment in individuals, for opportunities like:

• studying a language
• conducting academic research
• completing a service project
• pursuing graduate study
• designing and executing an independent project

Most importantly, the application process is a valuable opportunity to learn about yourself and to grow in unexpected way. There are hundreds of opportunities available — and many are available for international students!
