 *These statistics were obtained from the Wellesley College Center for Work and Service. The granting foundation may have slightly lower numbers as Wellesley includes in its figures all students awarded a scholarship or fellowship, even if the student turns down the award or was awarded more than one by the granting foundation. Alumnae awards are included in the counts.
